Background: In November of 2008, California voters approved Prop. 1A, which issued nearly $10 billion in bonds to establish a “clean, efficient, high-speed train service linking Southern California, the Sacramento San Joaquin Valley and the San Francisco Bay Area.” This network will connect 26 stations with over 800 miles of track; traveling at over 200 miles per hour, with an annual ridership of up to 117 million passengers by 2030. New stations will boost residential and commercial development. To help responsibly guide this development, California’s ULI District Councils have organized ULI’s California High-Speed Rail TOD MarketPlace. Complete agenda available at HSRTODMarketplace.org.
Where and when: Thursday Sept. 23, 2010, 8 a.m.-6 p.m. at Anaheim Convention Center, 800 W. Katella Avenue, Anaheim, California
