Alameda Journal: Alameda: Planning Board to consider "town center," zoning at Alameda Point, October 9, 2013


Among the recommendations is to realign West Atlantic Avenue west of its intersection with Main Street so that it offers a direct connection between the waterfront and the Wesbter Street business district, and for the new ferry terminal to be located at the Seaplane Lagoon's eastern edge.

West Atlantic also would be redesigned to "de-emphasize the automobile," including limiting access to the waterfront to just cyclists and pedestrians, as a way to make the area more attractive, City Planner Andrew Thomas said.

The recommendations also include creating a public plaza near the Seaplane Lagoon with possibly a building that would serve as a neighborhood landmark, Thomas said.
