Project Overview

We launched a study in early 2018 that built on ideas generated by residents through the Neighborhood Plan Update (2009) and other city and community plans. 

This study looked at:

  • Station and neighborhood multimodal access and circulation improvements
  • Identify urban design recommendations to address issues of safety, placemaking, activation, wayfinding, and equitable and universal access
  • Conduct a feasibility assessment of these improvements
  • Prepare streetscape concept plans for adoption if criteria articulated in Streets Illustrated (the City’s Right-of-Way Improvements Manual) are met
  • Understand community priorities and identify potential funding partners
