Equitable transit-oriented development, or ETOD, was a term coined in the early 2000s in response to traditional TOD taking place across the U.S.. Since then, passion, strategy and organizing by a number of Chicagoans has led to broader understanding of ETOD in our region, and significant ETOD wins in neighborhoods. We’ve grown from a small organizing body to a collaborative influenced by scores of people who bring perspectives and expertise to our steering committee, leadership council, working groups, community tables, symposia, and JEDI and Ambassadors cohorts. In a short time, we’ve expanded the definition, stakes and voices of ETOD by re-envisioning leadership and shifting power to community. The results: community-driven decisions about ETOD, informed by on-the-ground experience. Learn more about our people.
