It's kind of silly to think that since the development is TOD they won't need to provide the required amount of resident parking spaces. The only transit this development is oriented around is BART, which leaves the Tri-Valley. Will there be a transit hub with bus service connecting residents to any nearby shopping center? What services are around there that will provide residents with the fundamentals (groceries, pharmacy, post office, etc)?

Maybe while not restricting what kind of retail can go in, I think it is entirely reasonable to have the developer provide incentives to the kinds of businesses that would be beneficial to the residents, especially if the developer is saying that 1 in 5 residents won't own a car (where do they get that data from?).
