Which strategies that leverage the station area's MITOD opportunities could be employed to address the needs of existing under-served populations?
Introduction to your MITOD Analysis
The following process will lead from initial perceptions about a station area’s MITOD potential, through three areas of analysis, to the development of a MITOD Station Area Plan that can be implemented by stakeholders.
The three-part data gathering and analysis components of plan development must be considered in tandem to be effective, but need not be conducted in any specific order. These three areas of analysis are composed of questions to be answered that span several subjects: demographics, housing, real estate markets, land capacity, and neighborhood stability. Each question highlights key information that will be used at the end of the process to compose a downloadable "package of tools" that will help local jurisdictions select and direct policy tools to achieve their MITOD goals.

Once you have developed a coherent plan with stakeholder input you can begin to assign actions and deadlines to appropriate stakeholders. The key to this step is having buy-in from stakeholders in all prior steps of the planning process.
This section asks about existing real estate development sites and housing preservation opportunities. In addition to physical characteristics of the housing potential, users will be asked to examine existing policies - delineating existing barriers to and opportunities for the preservation and development of mixed-income transit districts.
This section asks about several factors that will help determine which MITOD strategies are most appropriate for the station area of interest. Based on research outcomes, the final step of this section suggests several MITOD strategies that can be targeted to MITOD opportunities for specific underserved populations.
This section asks users to gather and synthesize demographic and housing data to determine which populations are or are not being served by the current housing stock.
In the first step, the opinions of various stakeholders are synthesized into an initial MITOD prediction that will be confirmed or refuted by information found in the subsequent analysis.
