Station Urban Design Issues in Red Rock Commuter Rail
Lance Neckar, Professor, Landscape Architechture
Project Summary:Hastings, Minnesota is the southern terminus of the proposed Red Rock Commuter Rail service to the Twin Cities. Not only does a commuter rail station in Hastings pose a challenge to the city's historical identity, it also presents developmental difficulties because of the town's watershed problems. Using commuter rail-oriented design approaches to evaluate the two alternative station location sites, this report explains how the fully built-up historic Mississippi River town can be enhanced through commuter rail-oriented development.
