Transit-Oriented Development Planning at Negley Station – Stakeholder Meeting
April 24, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Port Authority of Allegheny County is embarking on station area planning at Negley Station, on the Martin Luther King, Jr. East Busway, for the purpose of identifying opportunities for access improvements and transit-oriented development (TOD). Outcomes resulting from planning are intended to be a collaboration of the agency, City, and neighborhood.
Station area planning will involve looking at Port Authority facilities and property at Negley Station as well as conditions in the immediate surrounding area. The resulting plan will recommend improvements that the transit agency, and in some cases the City or other property owners, could undertake to make it easier for people to use the station. In addition, the plan will determine what TOD is feasible and desirable on Port Authority land, enabling the agency to seek development partners in the future. The Port Authority’s goals in pursuing this planning are to improve the rider experience and ensure the highest and best use of its property in order to grow ridership and other forms of revenue.
