The Northern California Chapter of the American Planning Association has selected the Windsor Station Area Plan to receive the Comprehensive Plan – Small Jurisdiction Award at the 2014 APA Northern Section Awards.  EPS participated as part of a multi-disciplinary team that developed the Plan for the area around Windsor’s downtown rail station.  The Windsor Station is part of Phase II of the Sonoma Marin Rail Transit (SMART) system.  Construction of Phase I (from San Rafael to Santa Rosa) is underway.

EPS prepared a market demand analysis that evaluated the economic and real estate market conditions and trends that will shape near and long-term growth opportunities in the Downtown Windsor Station Area.  EPS’s research and analysis targeted the housing, office, retail, and hospitality sectors.  The work also helped to frame the public participation and visioning process to ensure that realistic and achievable concepts were carried forward.  The Station Area Plan was adopted by Windsor Town Council in January of 2012
