This studio worked with the town of Raynham, Massachusetts, on a proposal for a commuter rail station on the existing Raynham Park Greyhound Track. The project began by working with local and regional planning officials to develop project goals and preliminary strategies for this 140 acre site. Using an analysis of best practices in Transit Oriented Development and planned communities, the master plan unifies the mixed-use pedestrian friendly neighborhoods in its overall organization while linking each neighborhood to one another and to the station area. The relationship to the environmentally sensitive Hockomock
Swamp was carefully considered by exploring linkages to an active buffer zone and groundwater mitigation techniques.
