Last chance to attend meetings and speak up on this topic, people.
Those that have followed this tell me there are inconsistencies. Most neighbors are thrilled for the Del Monte site to be cleaned up and developed, but are very rightly upset about the plan’s inadequate provisions for traffic and parking management that, as currently designed, will negatively impact the neighborhood.
25,000 square-feet of retail with no provisions for patron off-street parking (!) + 503 parking spaces for 414 housing units (!!) (read: 503 spaces for 800+ cars) just across the street from Little John Park (an active park that fills up the street parking most evenings and weekends) . . . what could go wrong?!
On May 1st, the Alameda Sun had this excellent/informative article: Former Del Monte Warehouse Redevelopment Plans Revealed.
