This report aims to analyze the current state of the City of Oakdale and the community immediately surrounding the proposed transitway station locations. The analysis weighs the strengths and weaknesses of four different transitway stop locations by evaluating them based on their potential impacts on the local economy, land uses, transportation uses, transit efficiency and residents and visitors in the City of Oakdale. In the first section, special attention is paid to identifying stakeholders who will be affected by this transitway and the accompanying development. The four transitway sites are then compared to one another, and one location emerged as the best alternative. By planning for the transitway and station area now, the city will be well-positioned to take advantage of the economic and community development opportunities that will emerge along the Gateway Corridor as it comes on line.
