John Zemke of the Detroit-area publication Metromode brings us this story on the collaboration of two cities regarding TOD. Birmingham is building a transit center near it’s border with Troy, and the two cities have come together to decide what sort of development guidelines they will share in an effort to encourage development around the center. This sort of cooperation is encouraged by the Charter of the New Urbanism, because many issues of development don’t necessarily end at the city limits. I hope other areas sharing transit concerns will follow the example of Birmingham and Troy and cooperate.
