TOD: Analyzing Proposed Zoning Changes Bordering a new transit line.

About

The City of Albuquerque needed to analyze proposed zoning code changes that would increase density around stations along a new BRT transit line. These changes are expected to be enacted as a new zoning regulation.

Use of Zonar
The City of Albuquerque engaged Zonar, Urban 3, Crab Tree Group, DPZ, Placemakers, and CNT to provide recommendations and understand the development potential along the new transit line. Zonar was used to analyze empty lots and understand the potential of proposed zoning changes.

Data created by Zonar was then used for tax and financial forecasting, to analyze potential infrastructure demand, and to model new incentives to encourage development. Zonar identified unwanted outcomes with the new code in study, including non-compliance of empty parcels. Alternative solutions were tested with Zonar in real-time at public workshops.
Results
Results are currently being used to create new legislation for the proposed TOD.
