Aberdeen TOD

This Transit Oriented Development (TOD) Master Plan for the city of Aberdeen presents concepts that were developed and refined during a series of public workshops and presentations with local city stakeholders. The plan iden­tifies a vision for downtown Aberdeen that brings economic development opportunities and activity to the area, adds much-needed green space, recon­nects disjointed neighborhoods and creates a denser, more compact and walkable urban environment. The plan supports and enhances activity around a central focus at the Amtrak train station with a public market and sunken garden plaza that provides access to an important link below the rail tracks. Surrounding property development is proposed to be appropriately scaled toward a greater urban density to promote and reinforce the character of downtown.
