Station Area Planning – TOD Planning Initiative
Community Engagement / Planning
Strata Design has worked as the local planning consultant on the TOD Planning Initiative in Albuquerque, New Mexico. We have worked closely with national players, including Nelson Nygaard, Placemakers and Duany, Plater-Zyberk in order to look deeply at station areas along the Albuquerque Rapid Transit (ART) system. Strata Design, has conducted field analysis and system analysis in 17 station areas along the initial rapid transit route in order to determine issues and opportunities with first and last mile linkages to the ART system.
We have worked with various stakeholder groups, university architecture and planning students and community members to understand how to improve access to and from the new transit
system. From our participatory research, we have developed recommendations for various City departments, including the Planning Department, the Department of Municipal Development
and the Transit Department to maximize the potential of the recent transit investment.
