PALMDALE – The city of Palmdale is inviting local residents to participate in an interactive workshop that will help shape the community’s vision for the Palmdale High-Speed Rail Station Area Plan.

The workshop will be held from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 29, at the Chimbole Cultural Center, located at 38350 Sierra Highway in Palmdale.

The workshop will serve as a follow-up to the first public meeting, which was held in April, and it will provide the public with an update on public outreach, transportation, housing, land-use, economic development and station development scenarios.

“We look forward to continuing to work with local partners and stakeholders to implement a station area plan that will promote economic development and sustainability, provide transportation and housing choices, and improve the quality of life in Palmdale,” stated Transportation/Special Projects Manager Mike Behen. “When complete, a plan will be developed that will serve as a visionary document that will guide the future development of the High-Speed Rail station area.”

The public is also encouraged to participate in an online survey for the project, which may be found at or by clicking here.

“It is vital for our residents to provide their input as together we create a vision and plan for the future arrival of a multi-modal train station in the city of Palmdale,” Behen added.
