Scott Bernstein helped create the national coalition responsible for the landmark 1991 intermodal transportation bill ISTEA, and the “affordability index” often cited by HUD Secretary Shaun Donovan as a way to measure the true cost of commuting and impact of high gas prices on where people choose to live. Scott is founder and president of the national nonprofit Center for Neighborhood Technology, winner of the MacArthur Foundation Award for Creative and Effective Institutions. CNT’s work on TOD in older communities offers important lessons for ensuring the 30-10 plan and America Fast Forward accelerate both transit and community investment.
GB Arrington is principal practice leader for PB Placemaking, where he leads PB’s global TOD practice and has directed more than 125 TOD plans, including the Daniel Burnham Award-winning plan to transform Tysons Corner, VA, into America’s largest TOD. Before joining PB, GB charted a new direction for Portland, Oregon’s transit agency and helped make Portland an exemplar for the integration of transit investments and land use planning. He is currently advising LA Metro and the cities of LA and Beverly Hills on TOD strategies for the Westside subway extension with the goal of creating more value and less impact on communities.
