Background

Station area planning for the Bass Lake Road light rail transit (LRT) station launched in September with a community-wide meeting, where Crystal residents talked about the strengths and weaknesses of the station area and their vision for it. The process continued in early November at a three-day design workshop, where the community input was used to develop initial design concepts for the station area, which were shared at a November 5 community meeting. Join us to see how that feedback has informed the latest concept plans, and to share your comments.
