Station Area Plans
The City of San Rafael completed two separate Station Area Plans for the areas around the two proposed SMART stations in San Rafael. These plans set the stage to create vibrant, mixed-use, livable areas around the future Downtown and Civic Center rail stations supported by a mix of transit opportunities, including passenger rail service.
The coming of SMART rail service in late 2016 is an opportunity to build on the work that’s been done to create a variety of transportation and housing options, economic stability, and vibrant community gathering places in San Rafael.
The Station Area Plans were a multi-agency collaborative planning effort between the City of San Rafael, Sonoma Marin Area Rail Transit (SMART), Golden Gate Bridge Highway and Transportation District (GGBHTD), Marin Transit, the Redevelopment Agency, the County of Marin, and the Transportation Authority of Marin (TAM).
