The area around the Stadium LRT station is scheduled for a facelift.

A Transit Oriented Development Plan (TOD) is now being developed for the area near the LRT station. A TOD is how planners describe urban development with transit at its core.

The Stadium area is the third of the city’s TOD projects.

A series of community workshops began in 2009 and continue through 2010 to get input from area residents.

The goal is to transform the area into a vibrant and attractive, higher density, mixed use, walkable and transit-oriented community.
