ARTIC Honored for Sustainable Design Set to break ground next year, the project will use innovative, environmentally- friendly technologies and assist in stimulating the local economy
ANAHEIM, CA - (May 4, 2010) - Plans for the Anaheim Regional Transportation Intermodal Center (ARTIC) were awarded the 2010 Compass Blueprint Recognition Award for Sustained Leadership.

The Southern California Association of Governments will hold its fourth annual Compass Blueprint Recognition Awards in La Quinta on May 5 to honor plans and projects throughout the region that coordinate land use and transportation initiatives and work toward improving the mobility, livability, prosperity and sustainability of our region.

The panel of eight judges praised the plans for ARTIC because of the state-of-the-art facility that uses innovative, environmental-friendly technologies and the new development opportunities it creates that complement and support the local economy.

ARTIC is envisioned to be a transportation hub that is functional, adaptable and flexible. The facility will accommodate current and future modes of transportation, such as high-speed train service, and is being designed as a vibrant urban center that offers civic and public space.

ARTIC is situated at major freeways and is a short walk from Angel Stadium of Anaheim and Honda Center. Construction on the 16-acre site, owned by the Orange County Transportation Authority and Anaheim, is expected to begin next year.  For more information about ARTIC, visit the project Web site at www.ARTICinfo.com.
