Palmdale Multi-modal High Speed Rail Station Area Plan
In partnership with the California High Speed Rail Authority, the City of Palmdale is preparing a Station Area Plan for the planned high speed rail multi-modal station. Raimi + Associates is working with Parsons (the prime consultant) to develop a strategy for the transformation of the station area into an authentic, walkable, mixed-use urban center. Raimi + Associates' primary responsibility includes preparation of the land use plan and assistance with the community outreach. In addition, R+A is writing the zoning sections and design regulations for the Station Area Specific Plan.
