The Mound Transit Center is an important facet of the downtown revitalization master plan known as Mound Visions. The multi-modal transit hub provides the City with a well-designed park and ride facility for residents and commuters, served by Metro Transit bus routes and future light rail. Additional site amenities include a civic park, pond and water feature, and the provision for a community farmers market. The site is prominently located along County Road 15 and lies adjacent to a future light rail line, offering easy access to public transit. Because of its prominence, the character and materials of the parking garage and site design must contribute to the qualities that Mound Visions establishes for the downtown area while still maintaining its functionality as a transit hub.
