What is Transit Oriented Development (TOD)?

Central Corridor Station Plans

University Avenue
The Saint Paul City Council has approved plans for the areas around the University Avenue LRT stations, which include Rice, Western, Dale, Victoria, Lexington, Hamline, Snelling, Fairview, Raymond, and Westgate. The set of station area plans have an introduction chapter and an implementation chapter (called “Moving Forward”). The Station Area Planning Overview contains more information on the station area plans themselves, as well as the process used to create them.

The Saint Paul City Council adopted the Downtown Station Area Plan in February 2010. Final versions of the approved plans can be found here.
