General Plan update

By Erik Pearson

More community workshops - Mar 6 & 11

HAYWARD, Calif. -- The deadline for discussion, exchange of ideas and public comments about Hayward’s future on www.Hayward2040.org has been extended until March 15, 2013.

The City of Hayward will hold a joint City Council/Planning Commission meeting at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, February 19, 2013 to present the draft Vision and Guiding Principles for the General Plan, which is based on public input received over the previous several months. Attendees will see how the community’s ideas are incorporated in the vision.

Residents will have two more opportunities to provide their views at free community workshops on March 6 at 7 p.m. at Hayward City Hall and on March 11, 2013 at 7 p.m. at the Matt Jimenez Community Center, 28200 Ruus Road, Hayward. If you or your neighbors have not attended a workshop, these are great opportunities to give direct input.

The General Plan is the City’s over-arching policy and planning document. It provides a blueprint for growth and development, sets city-wide policy and outlines a set of programs and projects to achieve the community’s vision.

Specifically, the purpose of a General Plan is to: identify land use, transportation, environmental, economic, and social goals and policies as they relate to new development; provide a basis for the City’s decision-making; provide citizens with an opportunity to participate in the planning and decision-making process; and inform citizens, developers, decision-makers and others of the ground rules that guide development within Hayward.

To share your ideas about how you would like the City of Hayward to develop, attend a free community workshop or visit www.Hayward2040.org.
