Draft Plans Released for Point Town Center

Last week, the City of Alameda announced it is approaching completion of plans for Alameda Point’s Waterfront Town Center area. Officials expect this area to become the heart of Alameda Point featuring retail establishments, attractions for visitors, waterfront promenades and transit-oriented multi-family housing.

The plan addresses the areas of the Point that front on Seaplane Lagoon, defined as a focal point of the new community to be developed. Planning staff has identified this location as a primary attraction among the new developments because of the waterfront.  

The draft of the plan for the public’s review can be found on the city’s website at http://alamedaca.gov/alameda-point/current-draft-documents. 

Studies there discuss the plan’s precise framework, existing conditions, access and mobility, open space, landscape and sustainability, land use and development, phasing and implementation, infrastructure and administration and enforcement. 
Also available is a plan dedicated just to transportation demand management, attempting to address many residents’ concerns regarding increased traffic as Alameda Point develops. 

The Planning Board will hold a public hearing to discuss the draft plan Monday, April 28, at 7 p.m. on the third floor of city hall. City staff will accept written comments on the draft plan through Thursday, May 15.
