This report highlights key recommendations and noteworthy practices identified at "Transit-Oriented Development in Southern Nevada" Peer Exchange held on December 2-3, 2015 in Las Vegas, Nevada. This event was sponsored by the Transportation Planning Capacity Building (TPCB) Peer Program, which is jointly funded by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and Federal Transit Administration (FTA).

Goals of the Workshop

the Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada (RTC) requested a TPCB peer exchange in order to:

  • Learn from peer agencies about case studies, lessons learned, and key considerations for implementing TOD;
  • Identify next steps for RTC as it seeks to implement TOD in the region;
  • Educate public-sector stakeholders—including State DOT, Clark County, and local cities—about how TOD has been implemented in peer communities; and
  • Leverage other related technical assistance activities, including a National Transit Institute training on TOD (September 2015) and an EPA Building Blocks workshop for the development community (2016).
