A Framework for Transit Oriented Development in Florida
(Document Download)

The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT), in partnership with the Florida Department of Community Affairs (DCA), developed "A Framework for Transit Oriented Development (TOD) in Florida" to promote and guide the implementation of 'transit ready' development patterns in Florida. It highlights and defines the basic components and parameters for TODs specific to Florida.

The Framework is intended to be used as a guide to aid local governments and public agencies in planning for and implementing transit. Implementation of the principles contained within these guidelines can assist local governments to comply with Florida's growth management regulations.

FDOT conducted a series of workshops throughout the State to vet the TOD concepts and guidelines with local governments, agencies, and the public. Based on the input gained at these work sessions, and with assistance from a statewide Steering Committee, the Framework was developed to provide guidance to local governments in refining their Comprehensive Plans and Land Development Codes to support various transit technologies and TOD.
