You would be surprised at how little designating an area as "Transit Oriented Development" means, mostly because most of the planning technicians, engineers, developers and code enforcers don't actually understand basic walkable urban design. I've seen too many potential TOD areas just turn into an excuse for high density without providing the proper road/sidewalk connectivity for people and slower moving cars.

Currently doing the engineering for some townhouses in the Largo Town Center "TOD" area, they are being placed right in the center of a highway on ramp!
