On making Greater Downtown more livable and more attractive for businesses and jobs of the future

Click the link below for some exciting news on a policy shift related to federal public transportation funding. The new policy puts much more emphasis on livability and economic development impacts of transit spending. This is a powerful statement and a dramatic change from existing policy as stated by U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood: “Our new policy for selecting major transit projects will work to promote livability rather than hinder it.”

A Waco streetcar is being proposed by the Chamber and I believe by those participating in the Greater Downtown planning process as a way to make the CBD and close in commercial neighborhoods more livable and more attractive for development and jobs.
