Speakers urged an emphasis on small business, preservation of San Francisco Bay views and transportation planning as a plan for a town center at Alameda Point got an airing before the city's Planning Board Wednesday evening, according to an article published today on The Alamedan website.
The plan includes a shopping area and waterfront recreation close to Seaplane Lagoon, other commercial development and more than 1,400 units of multi-family housing.
An urban design firm prepared the plan for the City of Alameda. No developer for the project has been selected.
The public will have several more opportunities to weigh in on the plan as it moves through the approval process, The Alamedan reports.
