Bay Fair Transit Oriented Development: Community Workshop on October 18
The City is hosting a community workshop to receive public comments on the recently released Draft Bay Fair Transit-Oriented Development Specific Plan and related Environmental Impact Report (EIR). The workshop will be held on Wednesday, October 18, from 6:00 – 8:00 PM at the Senior Community Center, located at 13909 E. 14th Street.
The Bay Fair Transit Oriented Development (TOD) Specific Plan creates a 20-year vision to transform the Bay Fair BART Station area into a vibrant and sustainable mixed use community. Funded by a $440,000 grant from the Metropolitan Transportation Commission, the City has worked with the planning firm Raimi & Associates, Madison Marquette, BART, Alameda County, property owners and community members on the project.
The draft TOD Plan contains ideas and policies to improve the half-mile area around the Bay Fair BART station over time by providing new housing opportunities, a modernized shopping experience, and improved pedestrian and bike access. The plan also recommends guidelines for new development, implementation actions, and financing strategies.
