Appendix A Survey Instruments A-3 7. Sustainable Design and Construction a) Do you, as the land owner, require specific sustainability outcomes, such as a certain LEED threshold, in Joint Development projects on your property? b) Do any of the local zoning jurisdictions in your service area have their own sustainability requirements, which your agency is required to apply in the case of Joint Development projects? c) If both your agency and local zoning authorities have sustainable design requirements, which is the more demanding? 8. Parking a) For residential, commercial, or mixed-use projects on your land, does your agency encourage or require reduced parking ratios and shared parking? b) If yes: are your Joint Development parking policies compatible with local zoning, or do your projects need zoning relief to achieve reduced parking? 9. Joint Development Goals and Metrics a) How would you characterize your agencyâs financial goals with respect to Joint Development? For example: monetizing real property assets; generating ridership and farebox revenue; off-loading certain station operation and maintenance costs by assigning them to a developer. b) Does your agencyâs Joint Development program also have non-financial goals? For example: producing affordable housing; enhancing station- area safety and security; influencing development in the larger station area; gaining a seat at the table with local or regional land use planners? c) From your agencyâs perspective, how do these various goal rank in importance? Part C. How You Carry Out Joint Development Projects 10. Joint Development Implementation Capacity a) For your agency, does the technical capacity to undertake Joint Development exist mostly in-house, or is much of your Joint Development activity outsourced to consultants? b) If outsourced, which aspects in particular? Market analysis? Legal? Design Review? Other? 11. Site Selection and Readiness a) How does your agency evaluate whether a particular site is ready to be offered for Joint Development? A market study? Industry outreach? Other factors? b) Have you sought to have a potential Joint Development site upzoned to allow greater density and land value? 12. Site Assembly: Partnering with Other Public Land Owners a) Have you undertaken, or are you currently planning, any projects in which the Joint Development site is assembled by combining land owned by your agency with land owned by another public agency? b) If yes: please describe the process. How did your agency and your public partner handle the management of the developer selection process? How did you allocate Joint Development costs and revenues? c) Do you envision opportunities for this type of combined land assembly, even if no such projects have yet emerged?
