The LCI study is centered on Transit-Oriented Development opportunities based on proposed alignments identified in the Northwest Connectivity Study for a Bus Rapid Transit station in an area that is poised for redevelopment and reinvestment in the community. The study area has an integral mix of commercial, residential (both multiple and single family dwellings) and transportation facilities for residents. The purpose of the study is to prepare land use and transportation recommendations that are both transit and development oriented.
