Sports Center celebrates with Open House & Fun Run

The Mark Green Sports Center will be celebrating its 10th anniversary this March. To celebrate this milestone, the Sports Center will open its doors for a free Open House and Health Fair on Saturday, March 4 and the annual Superhero 5k/10k Fun Run & Walk on Sunday, March 5.

Union Citys Mark Green Sports Center offers an open gymnasium in which a variety of sport activities are offered, including open gym basketball, volleyball, pickle ball, badminton, and table tennis. Along with these activities the Sports Center has a fitness area complete with free weights, a variety of Life Fitness cardio equipment, and strength training machines. To complement the fitness area, we offer numerous group exercise classes that include classes such as Zumba, Yoga, Bootcamps, Body Shred, Mixxed Fit, Silver Sneakers, and more. The Sports Center also offers a variety of fee-based programs such as adult basketball leagues, Junior Warriors Basketball camps, nutrition classes, and special events. We are also a proud recipient of a grant from the National Parkinson Foundation that has allowed us to train instructors and offer three of the premier Parkinsons specific exercise classes out there: Rock Steady Boxing, PWR! Moves (Parkinsons Wellness Recovery), and Dance For Parkinsons.

Talking traffic with the City of Fremont

Fremont is changing and so is its traffic. Sitting at one of the Citys 175 or so signals the other day, I began to wonder how traffic in Fremont is managed. Who are the people responsible for moving an increasing number of vehicles through a fixed number of streets?

To that end, I met recently with Noe Veloso and Donya Amiri, transportation engineers with the City of Fremont.

Tri City Voice: What is our city doing about traffic? How are decisions about traffic management made? Where do you put signals and how do you set speed limits?

Veloso: Typically, all that is governed by federal and state regulations and policies. Here locally we follow the California Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD). It provides guidance and regulation in terms of stop signs, traffic signals, warrant studies, everything that concerns the public right of way; it governs and regulates traffic control devices, how they are placed, when they are placed, and overall design.

TCV: What is a trip generation manual?

Veloso: When we look at a project, like a development, and were trying to assess its impact on the traffic system, we need to determine how many trips that development will generate. A lot of these manuals are for standard conditions and standard situations. There will be situations where we have latitude for engineering judgment.
