National Capital Region Transportation Planning Board

As a part of an ongoing effort in the Washington region to preserve and provide affordable housing that is accessible via high quality transit, Prince George’s County, the District of Columbia, and the City of Alexandria collaborated on an analysis of housing needs in transit-oriented development (TOD) locations. This effort was funded by the TPB’s Transportation/Land-Use Connections (TLC) Program in 2012. The study presents a summary of the research, recommendations, and proposed framework that together comprise the TOD Housing Needs Analysis.

The National Capital Region Transportation Planning Board (TPB) is the federally designated Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) for the region, and plays an important role as the regional forum for transportation planning. The TPB prepares plans and programs that the federal government must approve in order for federal-aid transportation funds to flow to the Washington region.

Members of the TPB include representatives of local governments; state transportation agencies; the Maryland and Virginia General Assemblies; the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority; and non-voting members from the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority and federal agencies. The TPB has an extensive public involvement process, and provides a 30-day public comment period before taking action on plans and programs.

The TPB's planning area covers the District of Columbia and surrounding jurisdictions. In Maryland these jurisdictions include Charles County, Frederick County, Montgomery County, and Prince George's County, plus the cities of Bowie, College Park, Frederick, Gaithersburg, Greenbelt, Rockville, and Takoma Park. In Virginia, the planning area includes Alexandria, Arlington County, the City of Fairfax, Fairfax County, Falls Church, Loudoun County, The Cities of Manassas and Manassas Park, and Prince William County.
