Key Market Indicators
A market profile for Parkesburg Station Area was completed previously that provided the basis for reviewing the area’s suitability for Transit Oriented Development (TOD). The market indicator results do not support traditional TOD at Parkesburg Station. Key limiting factors generally include predominance of low-density, single family detached housing; limited employment opportunities; no diversity of land uses; a net outflow of workers; limited transit connectivity; and limited pedestrian connectivity.
Parkesburg Borough’s zoning in the CBD appears to present an opportunity for future transportation center development.
