SANDAG on a Money Mission: Housing and Transit Nexus | NBC 7 San Diego

This region has a relatively small public transit system.
But to tilt the odds more in its favor, planners involved in that funding competition could take a page out of L.A.'s playbook by earmarking a bigger chunk of its transit land for low-income housing, as well as by getting waivers on guidelines more suited to the L.A. and Bay Area population densities.

That's the idea behind efforts to create affordable artist housing that are catching on quickly across Colorado.
