Michele Vives of Douglas Wilson Companies to Highlight Successful Implementation Strategies for Transit-Oriented Development in Underserved Communities

October 4, 2018

SAN DIEGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct 4, 2018--When the American Planning Association of California convenes in San Diego on Oct. 7, Michele Vives, senior managing director of Douglas Wilson Cos., will present innovative strategies for successful transit-oriented development (TOD) in underserved neighborhoods, based on her work with the Jacobs Center for Neighborhood Innovation

“The challenge of underserved neighborhoods is to successfully reconcile economic factors with solid planning goals,” said Vives, who will appear on a panel comprised of other notable planning experts, including Peter Winch of WRT, Diego Velasco of M.W. Steele Group, and Paul Marra of Keyser Marston.

Vives will review tactics that helped revive efforts for successful transit-oriented development at a key intersection in the Southeast community (Euclid and Market), located just minutes from San Diego’s thriving downtown.

“Working with the city for developer incentives and state agencies for grants and other infrastructure improvements has helped create community-serving and job-creating businesses on this undeveloped, underutilized land,” said Vives. “As with all things, a solid working relationship between city staff and private interests laid the foundation for getting things done.”

The American Planning Assn. California Conference in San Diego will be held Oct. 7-10 and is entitled “Shaping our Future: Planning Places for All.” For more information, visit apacalifornia.org.
