Geographic Area Covered: Burlington County, New Jersey

Abstract: In conjunction with the arrival of a new light rail transit system in Burlington County -- New Jersey Transit's Southern New Jersey Light Rail Transit System (SNJLRTS) -- this report recommends specific measures to encourage transit-oriented development (TOD) surrounding light rail stations. Eight communities along the 34-mile light rail line from Camden to Trenton are studied, including: Beverly/Edgewater Park, Burlington City, Delanco, Palmyra, Riverside, Riverton, and Roebling (Florence Township). Recommendations include zoning and master plan changes, identification of development opportunity areas, access improvements, and funding resources. Each town's demographics, land uses, transit-supportive uses, and real estate market are summarized. In addition, information on transit-oriented development principles, benefits and barriers is provided that can be applied to station area planning for any transit system.

Key Words: transit-oriented development (TOD), transit village, transit supportiveness, New Jersey Transit, Southern New Jersey Light Rail Transit System (SNJLRTS), Burlington County, master plan, mixed uses, zoning ordinance, zoning overlay district, access improvement, development opportunity area, existing land use, real estate market, smart growth, sprawl
