Everybody is invited to this community meeting, to share your input about your vision for a portion of downtown that is set to be redeveloped.
The West Downtown Specific Plan will be a community-driven plan that defines a vision for the area and develops a regulatory framework for future development and public improvements. The Specific Plan Area is generally bounded by Ygnacio Valley Road at the north, California Boulevard at the east, Olympic Boulevard at the south, and I-680 at the west. Approximately one-third of the Plan Area is currently developed with residential uses (houses, apartments, etc.), one-third with commercial uses (offices, stores, etc.), and one-third with civic/community uses (churches, the BART station, etc.).

This important plan will focus on making it easier to walk and bike between the BART station and downtown; and plan for new homes and businesses between Olympic Boulevard and the BART station, while preserving the Almond-Shuey neighborhood.
