Meetings Cover Plans for Clement Avenue, Site A at Point

The city is hosting a pair of meetings to update the community on its plans for Alameda Point and Clement Avenue. 

The city invites the public to Callahan’s Piano, 1800 Ferry Point, to see and discuss plans for Site A. This confab will be held Thursday, Jan. 29. There is no formal presentation; the community can stop by anytime between 6 and 8 p.m.

The development team Alameda Point Partners will be there to discuss ideas and drawings of the first step in transforming this 68-acre parcel into a mixed-use neighborhood. (“Point Gateway Plan Begins Taking Shape,” Jan.15). 

The city’s Public Works Department invites community involvement in its proposal to improve Clement Avenue between Broadway and Grand Street. Improvements may include removing the abandoned Alameda Beltline Railroad tracks, installing a bikeway and enhancing pedestrian access.  

The first community workshop is next Wednesday, Jan. 21 at 6:30 p.m. at the Main Library, 1550 Oak St. Those unable to attend this meeting can participate in an online forum at http://alamedaca.gov/public-works/open-forum. They can read what others are saying and post their own ideas or comments, which the city will incorporate in the decision process. Other workshops are scheduled for March and April. 

The plan is currently on the Transportation Commission’s agenda. The commission will meet at 7 p.m., Wednesday, Jan. 28, in the City Council chambers at City Hall, 2263 Santa Clara. The commission invites the community to comment on the project. To receive updates about the project by email or to be added to the Transportation Commission’s email list, send an email to Gail Payne at gpayne@alamedaca.gov.
