The Transit Neighborhood Plans will develop regulatory tools and strategies for the areas around these stations. These tools and strategies aim to encourage transit ridership, enhance the urban built environment, and focus new growth and housing in proximity of transit and along corridors while protecting the character of single-family neighborhoods. They will also promote job creation and preserve or enhance current industrial uses. Each station area is distinct and will be planned accordingly, with different intensities, land uses, design guidelines, and other strategies.
