Memo from City Manager to City Council Regarding Draft Master Infrastructure Plan and Conceptual Financing Plan for Alameda Point, September 17, 2013
The City of Alameda is preparing a comprehensive zoning ordinance amendment, Master Infrastructure Plan (MIP), Town Center and Waterfront Precise Plan, and an environmental impact report (EIR) for Alameda Point for City Council approval in early 2014. These project approvals will facilitate near-term construction at Alameda Point.
The MIP presents a road map for new backbone infrastructure systems at Alameda Point, including new streets, flood and sea-level rise protection, shoreline stabilization, geotechnical mitigations, and wet and dry utilities, for the proposed project contained in the Naval Air Station Alameda Community Reuse Plan, consisting of 1,425 residential units and 5.5 million square feet of commercial space (Exhibit 1). Replacing aging infrastructure with new infrastructure systems is essential to support development at Alameda Point. The MIP will guide infrastructure development at Alameda Point over the next 25 to 30 years and is intended to be flexible and responsive to different disposition and development scenarios.
