Why Equitable Development?

Equitable TOD combines people and place-based approaches to ensure that the value created when land near transit is built out is accessible to, and provides opportunities for, all community residents living near transit.

The market near Garnett station is growing and has a moderate probability of changing demographics. Renters are the first to be affected by an increase in property values in a growing market. As the market grows housing values will increase, limiting income diversity.
