Azusa TOD Specific Plan & General Plan/Development Code Update
The City of Azusa retained RRM to prepare a 350-acre TOD General Plan/Development Code Update and Specific Plan focusing on Azusa’s downtown, two future Gold Line transit stations, and adjacent residential neighborhoods. Funded through a Los Angeles Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) grant, the work effort addresses a mix of commercial, residential, and entertainment related land uses that will be instrumental in creating a vibrant mixed-use, pedestrian-oriented environment. The project market analysis informed recommended land uses and development standards which are complemented by design guidelines to ensure high quality, compatible development. The inclusive community engagement process incorporated ideas voiced by residents, business owners, and decision makers. The overall effort was complemented by an integrated CEQA process which yielded an Environmental Impact Report.
