Two years ago, Metro's Board of Directors set a goal building at least 10,000 homes on agency-owned land - roughly half of which would be set aside for lower-income households. Now, in conjunction with a report on the use of Metro properties for shelter facilities and safe parking, the transportation agency is finally taking inventory of what sites it might like to see redeveloped.

In a report scheduled for review at the March 16 meeting of the Board's Executive Management Committee, Metro staff have outlined 17 properties which may serve as future joint development sites. They include:
