Sonoma-Marin Area Rail Transit District’s (SMART) board earlier this week authorized funding the design and construction of a second commuter-rail station in Petaluma, California. 

SMART will use $8 million in proceeds from the sale of a downtown property to fund the construction of a new station and parking lot at Corona Road and North McDowell Boulevard, SMART officials said in a press release.

The property sale is expected to close Nov. 19.

Since the inception of SMART, the agency has planned for two stations in Petaluma, one downtown and a second in the north, officials said.
