Third workshop set for Concord Community Reuse Plan


The public is invited to the third workshop on the Concord Community Reuse Plan for the former Concord Naval Weapons Station. The workshop will be held Saturday, Sept. 23 starting at 9 a.m. at the Concord Senior Center, 2727 Parkside Circle. Check-in begins at 8:30 a.m.

In 2012, the City Council adopted the Reuse Project Area Plan for the 5,000-acre base, reflecting several years of community visioning and planning. More than 65 percent of the project will become parks, playfields and open space. Over the next 25 years, the remaining area will be developed in phases. The Specific Plan process is geared to taking the next step toward development by providing additional details of the project including zoning and development standards such as setbacks and height requirements, street sections and a phasing plan.

On March 18, the first workshop was held describing the process for the development of the Specific Plan. At the June 17 workshop, master developer Lennar l FivePoint's planning team presented preliminary land use design concepts for a variety of land use components for the Specific Plan area and Phase One of the project. At the upcoming Sept. 23 workshop, the master developer plans to present the team's proposed land use plan for community feedback. Land use options will also be discussed.

The land use plan will be the basis for the preparation of a more detailed Specific Plan document, technical studies such as those for traffic, and the environmental analysis that will be conducted, pursuant to the CEQA process, over the next nine months. Public input will assist the planning team as it refines the plan for review by the Community Advisory Committee, Planning Commission and City Council in October. Following the presentation, attendees will be able to visit a variety of stations highlighting key aspects of the project.
