Additional Information

A station area plan is a document that is developed in order to clearly delineate the policies and vision for a specific area of the city. It is intended to give more detailed recommendations for the area than those that are provided in the City's more general comprehensive plan. A small area plan does not function to replace the policies of the comprehensive plan: instead it serves to refine those policies for a particular area of the city that has great potential and will be facing dramatic change over the next 20 years..It builds on the goals, policies and implementation steps in the comprehensive plan, but it does so in a way that provides a finer level of detail. The plan examines the current conditions of the area, develops a future vision of what residents and business representatives want the neighborhood or area to become and then formulates specific goals, objectives, and policies or projects to implement that vision.
