OsideNewsThe public’s input is sought on redevelopment plans for the Oceanside Transit Center through upcoming community meetings in late February and mid-March.

North County Transit District, working with Toll Brothers Apartment Living, is in the planning stages of redeveloping the transit center, located at 235 S. Tremont St. in Oceanside. The location is a hub for rail travel, serving NCTD’s Coaster and Sprinter commuter systems, the Metrolink commuter system and Amtrak’s Surfliner.

The project also includes the relocation of North County Transit District Headquarters, which leaves the current location at 810 Mission Ave. open for redevelopment as part of the project as well.

The Tremont location calls for 547 apartments, including 15% designated affordable housing, and a luxury hotel and amenities, according to the project’s prospectus. The Mission Avenue location is slated for 206 apartments, including 15% designated for low-income households.

The first of two transit and mobility forums is scheduled for 5 p.m. Feb. 22 via the Zoom online conferencing platform. The meeting will address community feedback and transit-oriented development.

The second forum takes place in person from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. March 16 at the Oceanside Civic Center Community Rooms, 300 N. Coast Highway.

Community members interested in participating in the forums can RSVP online at the project’s website:
