Richardson "Frequently Asked Questions & Series
City of Richardson published a "Frequently Asked Questions" column
in its Richardson Today newspaper explaining the concept
of transit-oriented development (TOD) and the impending
opening of Richardson's four DART light rail stations. Richardson
Today is the city's informational newspaper, distributed
to every household in the City each month. In addition,
the paper is available at municipal facilities throughout
the city, including City Hall, recreation centers, and
the public library. Current circulation is 37,000 per month.
The series of articles began in December
of 2001 and ran through July of 2002. A total of eight
articles were written, each included three to four questions
and answers about light rail and transit-oriented development.
The goal of the series was to raise public awareness of
DART, Richardson's light rail stations, and the benefits
of transit-oriented development.
