This work is being updated as part of the Implementation Plan in order to assess the market driven potential for development based on bus rapid transit.
As the last stop on the Red Rock Corridor, the Hastings transit station will serve the growing population of eastern Dakota County as well as Goodhue County and western Wisconsin. The proposed transit station will be located in downtown Hastings off of Second Street and west of the existing historic train depot.
Long-term plans for the station area include a new 400-stall parking facility north of Second Street that would be wrapped by new two to three story mixed-use development. The mixed-use development would have retail and commercial space on the ground floor with housing or office space on the upper floors. The plan recommends that development should be an extension of the character and scale of the existing downtown area. Trails and sidewalks would connect to the station, which would offer commuters bike racks and bike lockers. A public green space and farmers market may provide an opportunity for community gathering and focuses energy and activity along historic Second Street in downtown Hastings.
Additional residential and business development surrounding the station site will be guided by the study completed in 2011, and will be coordinated by city staff and local elected officials.
