If properly designed, HSR can be a catalyst for improved urban environments by organizing growth in a more compact and less automobile-centered manner. California's greenhouse gas legislation, AB 32 and SB 375, creates incentives for infill development and greater transit orientation. However, to date there is no guarantee that the local governments that control development around the 26 stations will embrace dense development near rail stations, be able to provide the local transportation services that will produce a seamless door to door trip with HSR its centerpiece. This panel will explore the opportunities and challenges of inciting local land-use decisions that encourage compact and transit-dense urban environments, which can both enable HSR to meet its full potential and provide benefits of social capital and quality of life on their own terms.
