This NJ Spotlight News / PBS video highlights the recent Regional Plan Association (RPA) Homes on Track report that shows how TOD initiatives help to transform downtowns, attract businesses, and create vibrant communities. The report also discusses how developing TOD faces obstacles such as restrictive zoning laws.
