Concern over proposed day care facility
Glenmoor residents, through a community group called "Committee to Preserve Glenmoor," have expressed opposition to the proposed conversion of a residential tri-plex located at the corner of Mattos Drive and Fremont Boulevard. A 65 student Day Care/Montessori School is planned for that location.
According to the Glenmoor group, the project is expected to generate approximately 291 daily trips on a typical weekday, further complicating local traffic patterns. The area already suffers from high automobile volume, especially during school drop-off and pick-up hours due to a series of schools located along Fremont Boulevard and nearby. Congestion due to trains crossing Fremont Boulevard in Centerville and traffic in and out of large apartment complexes are also cited as reasons for opposition.
The Fremont Planning Commission will consider a request for a conditional use permit for the new school at its meeting on Thursday, January 28 at 7 p.m. For more information about the Committee to Preserve Glenmoor, please call (510) 795-9601 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
At the same meeting of the Fremont Planning Commission, a request for a communications tower in the Glenmoor area will be considered. Residents are asking that the tower be designed as a tree-like structure to help disguise its presence.
