Windsor Station Area Plan/Downtown Specific Plan and EIR
Windsor is a small town in Sonoma County, with a downtown centered adjacent to the planned Sonoma Marin Rail Transit (SMART) Station. The Specific Plan seeks to establish a cohesive transit-oriented community with links to the town and the region and set the framework for the next era of Downtown’s development, with an expanded core—re-orienting it around the Town Green with a “Town Green Loop” strategy—and a broader array of uses and amenities, which will serve as a regional draw.
Dyett & Bhatia led an extensive community outreach process, including a community-wide survey; and prepared the Specific Plan and Environmental Impact Report. The Plan includes guiding principles that provide an overall vision for the area, goals and policies for each topic, as well development standards/zoning regulations and design guidelines for development. It also includes an implementation program, with timelines and responsibilities.
