What is Station Area Planning?
Station area planning supports development of housing and businesses near transit stations. It also identifies ways to make it safer to walk and bike to transit stations.
Examples of questions in station area planning include:
- Which sidewalks or street crossings need to be safer?
- What kinds of development would be good for your neighborhood (housing, retail, etc.)?
- What properties in your neighborhood would you like to see redeveloped?
