Stakeholders involved in your visioning effort should include those most able to implement it. In Envisioning for TOD efforts, implementing stakeholders may include policymakers, developers, and nonprofits working in the area, as well as those involved in regional initiatives that impact local communities (i.e. transportation systems, economic development planning, etc.). In this step, stakeholders work together to develop a viable implementation framework and act on it.

How can you improve policy readiness?
Are there policy barriers (i.e. suburban parking requirements) that can be removed? Are there alternative coding options (i.e. form-based code) that would streamline development processes?
What public investment (i.e. capital improvements)/public-private partnership options are possible?
Are interim or catalyst projects possible?
Circle back. Coordinate back out to neighboring cities and regional/state agencies about your local vision, enabling local planning to influence regional/state-level work (i.e. the Regional Transportation Plan, plans created by the Governor's Office of Economic Development).
