Newark City Council

September 8, 2011

Approval of minutes from July 28
(Mayor Smith, Councilmember Huezo abstain due to absence)

Presentations and Proclamations
Introduce Preservation Specialist Tyra Harrington
Commend Eagle Scout David J. Kautz
Proclaim September 15-18 as Newark Days

Public Hearings
Certify Final Environmental Impact Report and a General Plan amendment for the Dumbarton Transit-Oriented Development Specific Plan. The new developments within this area (Area 2) - south of Thornton Ave, west of Willow St - will be "form-based" instead of using specific land use criteria so the overall look of the area will conform to a visual plan. There is no commitment to redevelopment resources for this process nor is it dependent on train service; it will be funded without City resources - 80% Metropolitan Transportation Commission and Association of Bay Area Governments/ 20% Property owners. Labor support of this development as a means to increase employment and training opportunities was expressed at the meeting.


Mayor David Smith Aye
Vice Mayor Luis Freitas Aye
Councilmember Alan Nagy Aye
