During the fall semester of 2004, a group of graduate Architecture and Community and Regional Planning students worked with the community of Belen to envision the design possibilities for the commuter rail stop and the surrounding neighborhoods. The design options included in this report are separated into the following three districts: the Rail District, the Downtown District, and the Acequia District. This report is targeted to all members of the community including youths, residents, city officials, local business owners, and nonprofit organizations. The purpose of this report is not to offer final design solutions, but to generate discussion within the community. It has been designed to show possible outcomes for Belen.
