Greater NewPark Master Plan Community Meeting August 8th- 7pm --Pizza!!-
Submitted By Terrence Grindall
The City of Newark is embarking on an effort to identify a vision and a strategy to re-vitalize the NewPark Mall area. The mall area is an important part of the City; it draws many shoppers from around the area and is profitable for most area land owners, provides employment and generates significant revenue for the City of Newark.
The departure of major retailers, changes in shopping patterns, and deferred maintenance have drained energy from this area and cast a shadow on its future. With clear vision and direction, this area can be improved. Could it become a vibrant mixed use area where thousands of people shop, live, work, recreate and experience culture? Could it return to its place as the premier shopping and entertainment destination in Southern Alameda County? It will not happen without a plan so please help us formulate it.
Come to this community meeting to express your ideas, issues and concerns about this important area. We will explain the Master Plan process and area opportunities and constraints. Most importantly, we will listen to your ideas on how to improve the area.
Community Meeting on Greater NewPark Master Plan
