The Raleigh planning department will be holding an open house next Wednesday to showcase its idea for the Raleigh Union Station. The proposal would put a large transit station on the western side of downtown, with regional and city bus service, Amtrak and eventually high-speed rail.

Read the full proposal here. Read a great analysis of the proposal over at the Raleigh Connoisseur blog.

From the planning department:

The objective of the design and development strategy is twofold: first, to prepare a conceptual multi-modal transit center design that coordinates the location of various existing and future transit service areas with convenient connections among service platforms; and second, to prepare a development strategy for properties within and in the vicinity of the transit center.

A public open house will be held on May 12 to present the report findings and answer questions. Two opportunities to attend will be held at the Raleigh Urban Design Center, located at 133 Fayetteville Street:

12:00 to 1:30 PM – Informal information session with City staff available to answer questions

6:30 to 8:00 PM – Formal presentation followed by question & answer
