Dublin dedicating new plaza at 9 a.m. today to honor city's 1st mayor

Pete Snyder persuaded BART board to build line to Dublin/Pleasanton

A new public plaza just north of the east Dublin/Pleasanton BART station will be dedicated at 9 a.m. this morning in honor of Pete Snyder, Dublin's first mayor who served from 1982-1986, and then again from 1990-1994.

Snyder played an integral role in getting BART to Dublin and Pleasanton. He worked with BART, the two cities and investment firms to create a public-private partnership that enabled BART to pay for the new station.

After serving his two separate terms as mayor, Snyder was elected to serve on the BART board of directors from 1996-2004.

The city of Dublin and Avalon Bay developers are paying for the new plaza.

The new Pete Snyder plaza will include a pedestrian connection to the nearby Campbell Green properties.
