Draft Framework Plans - February 2024

what are the framework plans?

The Silver Line Station Areas Plan will be a roadmap for future growth and development around the future 12th Street and Shiloh Road Silver Line stations. The Plan will be a blueprint that guides how the areas near the stations will change over time. The Framework Plans are important components that serve as the basis for the overall Silver Line Station Areas Plan. Framework Plans set the vision for the station areas by establishing and laying out the community's priorities. They include maps and recommendations for how the station areas should look and feel as redevelopment occurs and priorities for future community investment and improvements.

Public feedback has been a critical component in the development of the Framework Plans. Over the past several months, the project team has engaged in collaborative efforts with the public to identify the preferred vision, goals, and opportunities for the 12th Street Station and Shiloh Road Station areas. Through meetings, surveys, and discussions, public input has helped identify community needs and priorities. Public suggestions have influenced the direction for land use, transportation, and open space in the station areas. 

On February 6, 2024, the City hosted a Public Open House to collect feedback and make final refinements to the Draft Station Area Framework Plans. The following information outlines the draft maps and recommendations for Land Use, Transportation, and Open Space for both station areas.

Since April 2023, the project team has solicited community feedback to develop the vision, guiding principles, and general character for the future station areas. Community feedback was collected through multiple engagement events, including:

  • Virtual Visioning Workshop (April 2023) Advisory Group
  • Charrette and Public Open House (June 2023) Advisory Group and Public 
  • Digital Open House (July 24, 2023 thru August 21, 2023) Advisory Group and Public 
  • Community Survey (May 31, 3023 thru July 14, 2023) Public 
  • Project Advisory Group Workshop (December 13, 2023) Advisory Group

The input received during these previous public outreach steps identified several priorities for the future of the station areas. These input themes form the foundation of the Draft Framework Plans, which aim for alignment with community aspirations, economic development potential, and transit-oriented development principles. Key themes are categorized into three areas: Land Use, Transportation, and Open Space & Character. Click the links below to review the input themes for each of the station areas.
