City Forming New Committee for Bay Fair Transit-Oriented Development Plan
The City of San Leandro is seeking interested applicants in the City and unincorporated Alameda County to serve on a new community advisory committee that will participate in the development of a Transit-Oriented Development (TOD) Plan for a half mile radius area around the Bay Fair BART Station, including Bayfair Center. The application deadline is 4 pm, Thursday, December 3, 2015.
The new approximately 20 member committee shall be composed of diverse, local stakeholders including homeowners, renters, property owners, and business as well as representatives from City Boards/Commissions, homeowners associations, community-based organizations, professional associations (e.g., labor, environmental), and public service agencies. The committee will hold at least four meetings, likely in the evenings, beginning in January 2016.
The planning effort is funded through a $440,000 Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC) Priority Development Area Planning Grant, which the City was awarded last year. The Bay Fair TOD Plan is scheduled to be completed by April 2017.
Applications are available on the City’s website in English, Spanish and Chinese or may be obtained at the Community Development Department in City Hall at 835 East 14th Street.
