Fact versus Fiction
Submitted By City of Union City
The East-West Connector is an integral component to serve Union City?s Station District. Alameda County voters twice voted to fund the East-West Connector to provide a second point of access to the Station District, now an award-winning Priority Development Area. The Station District has built or entitled 1,700 new housing units, 1.2 million square feet of office are planned, and over 80 acres of underutilized land await activation ? all of which are adjacent to the Union City BART Station.
Several myths have recently been published in newspapers and on social media concerning the East-West Connector. Mayor Carol Dutra-Vernaci is committed to continuing her work with regional agencies and business partners to fund Dumbarton Rail.
We encourage you to go to unioncity.org/EWCfacts to learn about the facts of the project.
