High-Speed Train Station Visioning Project



The City of Gilroy engaged residents and stakeholders in a visioning process to evaluate the opportunities, costs, and potential benefits of the proposed high-speed train station being planned for Gilroy at two alternative locations by the California High Speed Rail Authority. The visioning process produced three  reports with the  following goals: to present for consideration the relative merits of the two station locations; to describe the relative merits of alternative “vertical alignments” in each location; and to determine physical and economic development opportunities. Underpinning the vision process was a comprehensive community engagement process including workshops, a project website, and stakeholder interviews.
