Dumbarton Transit Development scoping meeting
By Meenu Gupta
A plan for a new neighborhood in Newark has been underway ever since City Council approved the concept of a transit and pedestrian-oriented residential community adjacent to the intersection of Willow Road and Enterprise Drive. This area - also referred to as Area 2 - has been extensively analyzed over the past months. Primary housing is expected to be townhomes with some single family detached homes and apartment/condo-style housing. Along with housing, the City proposes various parks; some large enough to provide sports fields and an outdoor amplified musical and dramatic performance area. The Specific Plan calls for about 17 acres of parks and open space.
The City of Newark has issued a Notice of Preparation (NOP) for an Environmental Impact Report (EIR) for the Dumbarton Transit-Oriented Development (TOD) Specific Plan for Area 2. A public scoping meeting about what issues should be addressed in the EIR will be held on Wednesday, April 21 at 3 p.m. in Newark City Council Chambers. "It is a scoping meeting about what issues should be addressed in the EIR. The public is invited but it is focused on the more technical issues," said Community Development Director, Terrence Grindall. Written comments on the scope of the EIR and alternatives will be accepted until Friday, April 30, 2010.
