Warm Springs/South Fremont Community Plan meeting
Submitted By Kelly Diekmann
Following adoption of the City's comprehensive update of the General Plan in December 2011 and completion of the Economic Development Administration (EDA) Studies for Warm Springs/South Fremont Revitalization in February 2012, the Fremont City Council has asked City staff to prepare a Community Plan for the area. The Plan's vision is to create a 21st Century Workplace and a mix of transit-oriented development uses.
The Community Plan will establish a land use plan and accompanying development and design standards for the area. While the plan will cover the entire 850-acre study area, it will focus on the near term potential of vacant and underutilized properties generally within one-half mile of the future Warm Springs/South Fremont BART Station (scheduled to open in late 2015).
The City of Fremont is holding an Open House and public meeting on Wednesday, May 22 for community members to learn more about the Warm Springs/South Fremont Community Plan and its current schedule. The meeting will take place at the Warm Springs Community Center.
The open house and meeting will include information stations covering topics of community interest such as public infrastructure - including transit and roads; the Warm Springs/South Fremont BART Station and extension plans and schedule; economic development goals; as well as planning for jobs and potential parks, schools, and housing. There will be a short presentation at 6:15 p.m., 6:45 p.m., and 7:15 p.m. to help orient participants to the meeting's format and to provide additional information on the community plan process; this same presentation will be shared at each of the noted times so community members can attend the presentation that works best for their schedule.
Information stations will be open from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Community members are encouraged to stop by and learn about the project and speak with City staff and team members. For more information about the Community Plan, please visit www.Fremont.gov/WarmSprings.
