General Plan Update:
Presentation of the new Community Plan Element of the updated General Plan. This provides for 11 geographic subareas within Fremont. This will incorporate Specific Plans within the context of the General Plan. A matrix identifies implementation measures including responsible party, timetable and priority. The goal is to create an internally consistent document that recognizes the vision and detail for the City as a whole and specific area goals within the City. A public draft of the Environmental Impact Report will be available in May and presented at work sessions in May/June.
Midtown Community Plan & Design Guidelines:
What's in a name was discussed regarding the area that has been called Midtown, Town Center, Downtown, City Center, Central Business District and more through years of study. This area is being defined in relationship to energy guidelines, commercial content, parcel size, pedestrian access, parking, design and art. The "back-in" parking experiment is at an end and deemed infeasible at this time. A financial impact analysis is expected to be completed May 2011.
