Transit District Plans


Capitol Heights Transit District Development Plan
Planning Board Vote to Adopt Plan, November 29, 2007

The goal of the Capitol Heights Transit District Development Plan (TDDP) is to provide for transit-oriented development (TOD) around the Capitol Heights Metrorail Station. TOD is generally defined as development located within a ten-minute walk or one-half mile of a transit station. The Capitol Heights plan is intended to ensure that the development of land in the vicinity of the Metro station maximizes transit ridership, serves the economic and social goals of the area, and takes advantage of the unique development opportunities that multimodal public transportation provides. The plan boundaries were developed during a year-long community-based planning process that included community envisioning workshops held in July and August 2005, a pre-charrette workshop held in October 2005, a community planning charrette held in November 2005, and a post-charrette meeting held in January 2006.
