University City Area Plan Boundaries

Video: CATS LYNX Blue Line Extension – preview of what to expect over the next three years of construction

Purpose of the Plan Update?

This planning process is different from others because it is primarily an update to the adopted University City Area Plan (2007) to account for changes in the LYNX Blue Line Extension alignment and station locations. Primary changes to the adopted policies will occur within one half mile from the alignment. Other areas may be revised to be more consistent with recently adopted policies such as community design and transportation and updated to reflect current conditions.
