In a report in his "Around Dublin" column, John Zukoski notes that the Dublin City Council and Planning Commission will hold a joint study session at 7 p.m. tomorrow night in the City Council Chambers (100 Civic Plaza) to discuss the Downtown Dublin Specific Plan project.
Zukoski's report states:
Downtown Dublin is generally considered to be the area encompassed by I-580 /Amador Valley Boulevard (south and north) and San Ramon Road / Village Parkway (west and east).
The Specific Plan is important to Dublin residents and businesses because it will encourage development and revitalization in the downtown area that:
* Takes advantage of the transportation opportunity presented by the new BART station;
* Maintains and enhances the sales tax base of the downtown are;
* Encourages a mix of existing large format retail uses, smaller retail, service, office, hotel, and mixed use development; and
* Includes design guidelines.
The purpose of this study session is to discuss the land use concept for the Downtown Dublin area, the proposed "Development Pool" (square footage available for intensification/development of properties in the Specific Plan Area) and the proposed Community Benefit Program for use of the Development Pool.
The city of Dublin is inviting all residents and business owners to attend the study session. Additionally, this is an opportunity for folks in the community to share their thoughts about the Downtown Dublin project with the City Council and Planning Commission.
