Memo from Chief Operating Officer - Alameda Point to Transportation Commission Regarding Draft Transportation Demand Management Plan for Alameda Point, April 23, 2014


On February 4, 2014, the City Council certified an environmental impact report (EIR), and approved a comprehensive zoning ordinance amendment (Zoning Amendment), associated General Plan Amendments and a Master Infrastructure Plan (MIP) for Alameda Point. The General Plan and the EIR require that all new development comply with a Transportation Demand Management Plan (TDM Plan) for Alameda Point. As a result, City staff has been actively working on preparing the TDM Plan.

The TDM Plan was discussed at the joint Planning Board and Transportation Commission meeting on September 30, 2013, and at the Transportation Commission meeting on December 11, 2013. Based on feedback from the boards and commissions and the community, City staff and its consultant, Kimley-Horn and Associates (KMA), prepared a draft TDM Plan that was presented to the Planning Board on March 24, 2014 for review and comment. City staff revised the draft TDM Plan based on comments received from the Planning Board. The revised draft TDM Plan is attached as Exhibit 1. City staff is requesting that the Transportation Commission recommend City Council approval of the revised draft TDM Plan, along with any proposed changes. City staff will incorporate comments from the Transportation Commission into a final TDM Plan for City Council approval. No new development will be allowed at Alameda Point until the TDM Plan is completed and approved by the City Council.
