Recommendation to Adopt Minor Revisions to the Street Sections in Alameda Point Master Infrastructure Plan and the Main Street Neighborhood Specific Plan
To: Members of the Transportation Commission
From: Liam Garland, Public Works Director
The Environmental Impact Report, General Plan Amendment, and Master Infrastructure Plan (MIP) for Alameda Point was approved by the City Council on February 4, 2014. Significant development activity has taken place in the intervening years including the start of construction for Site A, progress of the Veterans Administration project, the subdivision and sale of properties within the historic reuse area, approval of the Main Street Neighborhood Specific Plan (MSN) in March 2017, and the solicitation for developers of the West Midway Residential Mixed-Use Project.
In addition to the private development, City is designing the initial phases of infrastructure improvements within the historic base reuse area. These infrastructure improvements will upgrade or replace utilities including water, sewer, electrical, and telecommunications. Following the completion of underground work, streets will be reconstructed with new roadways, sidewalks, and bicycle facilities. Exhibit 1 shows the location of recent developments and initial phases of the City’s infrastructure project.
The development of detailed plans for the City’s infrastructure project, which is centrally located in the historic base reuse area, has prompted a holistic review of the street sections of Alameda Point prior to the construction of any improvements. As a result, staff is proposing several minor revisions to the MIP and MSN street sections.
A significant effort and public input went into the transportation component of the Alameda Point EIR and MIP. The MIP, however, recognizes:
“The final street sections shall be substantially consistent with these presented in the MIP, but may be adjusted to meet the needs of the City and the overall project. The final street sections for each street segment will be approved with each respective development”
The Transportation Commission is asked to review the proposed revisions, accept public comment, and approve the final street sections for the City’s infrastructure project in an updated exhibit to the MIP.
