Bostic and Boarnet awarded METRANS UTC Research grant
Bedrosian faculty members Raphael Bostic and Marlon Boarnet have received a grant fro METRANS UTC Research, for a project titled “Developing Affordable Housing Guidelines Near Rail Transit in Los Angeles.”
To inform planning and housing policy in the City of Los Angeles and in the broader Los Angeles metropolitan area, Bostic and Boarnet will compare the effect of different station-area development arrangements on housing affordability and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. The investigators will determine whether development near rail stations support Los Angeles’ goals for more affordable housing? Additionally, they will determine whether the move toward transit-oriented development will result in an increased use of transit, and therefore support California’s GHG emission reduction goals.
