This Week: The Bronx Talks Transit-Oriented Development

11:30 AM EST on January 23, 2012

Last April, the federal government announced a $3.5 million grant to a consortium of New York and Connecticut governments to promote transit-oriented development. In New York City, planning is focused on commuter rail stations in the Bronx and East New York. Tonight, HUD Regional Director Adolfo Carrión hosts a town hall meeting to gather public input on how to shape growth in the Bronx. Later in the week, Governor Cuomo hosts what is sure to be a fascinating presentation on public-private partnerships -- but it will be closed to the press.

    • Tonight: Adolfo Carrión hosts a town hall meeting in the Bronx to discuss the ongoing efforts, funded by the federal government, to promote transit-oriented development around the borough's Metro-North stations. 6:00 p.m.
    • Wednesday: DOT brings its bike-share demonstration to the Port Authority Bus Terminal, showing commuters the new transit option they'll have access to later this year. 3:00 p.m.
    • Friday: Andrew Cuomo hosts his fellow Democratic governors for a conference promoting public-private partnerships in infrastructure construction. 8:00 a.m.
    • Saturday: DOT's bike-share demo moves down to the Lower East Side's Essex Street Market. 12:00 p.m.
