NCI Charrette System Guide for Transit Oriented Development
The NCI Charrette System Guide for Transit Oriented Development (TOD) will be a concise nuts-and-bolts reference for planning TOD projects. The Guide will be based on the NCI Charrette System, a holistic collaborative project management system designed for complex, contentious projects. It will describe a three-phase process framework that can be customized for the unique needs and issues of each project. The Guide may be used by all those involved in TOD planning, including MPOs, state, city and county planning agencies, transit agencies, consultants and community advocacy groups. The Guide will describe the process, tools and techniques required to completely plan a TOD project from its inception through implementation. The Guide will also include three case studies of successful TOD projects that used charrettes, representing a range of TOD typologies.
