Phase II of the Transportation Center Improvements focuses on creating a town center for the Village of Los Lunas. The site design provides three unique spaces: North Plaza, Courtyard and South Plaza drop-off.
The North Plaza features a small stage for musical performances and other community events surrounded by plentiful shade. Permeable pavement with a shallow water wicking system provides the trees with an excellent growing medium. Plans include a bus stop on Juan Perea Road.
The Courtyard is enclosed by a stucco wall to match the transportation center. It provides a more intimate setting conducive to smaller, private gatherings with a demure water feature, plazuela and centralized seating area.
The South Plaza is designed for pedestrian traffic between the Rail Runner station and the permeable paved loading and unloading zone at Juan Perea Road. It features several bermed seating areas with a dense canopy of Cottonwood trees to provide refuge from the sun.
