High-speed rail in California is a massive statewide economic development project. If planned well, it can revitalize downtowns, enable new economic opportunities, preserve farmland and improve the quality of life throughout the state. SPUR, in collaboration with the California High-Speed Rail Authority and key station cities, recently released a major report looking at the economic development and land use opportunities of high-speed rail. Join us to hear what we learned.
