Posted 9/12/16: Panel Meeting 9/21/16 on the San Rafael Downtown Station Area

Wednesday, September 21,  7:00 – 8:30 PM
Tamalpais Room, San Rafael Corporate Center
750 Lindaro St, San Rafael 94901

The Federation of San Rafael Neighborhoods is hosting a forum to discuss the vision for the SMART train downtown station area. There will be a panel of committed public officials and dedicated non-profit spokespeople, each bringing expertise and perspective to the discussion.  The panel will discuss the future of the extremely confined site that has conflicting uses.

The lead question is: “What vision do each of you have to guide the very real decisions now being made in the Downtown Station Area – the future of the new transit center, the old train depot, commercial crossroads, area creeks and pathways?” 

Below are the goals that the Federation feels that the residents have:

  • Efficient flow of traffic from Hwy 101 and onto city streets
  • Safe pathways for pedestrians and cyclists traveling all directions
  • Appealing, aesthetic, and welcoming appearance
  • Reflection of our City’s natural setting and history
