A climate for better planning in Concord
The Concord Planning Commission will conduct a study session on the Climate Action Plan for the Concord Naval Weapons Station.
Please attend this study session! Ask them to ensure that all portions of the site are walkable and well served by transit, including the northern commercial sections along Highway 4.
This study session -- and the next on Feb. 2 -- are great opportunities to ask questions and encourage the city to keep strengthening the planís smart growth features.
Background: In February 2010, the Concord City Council voted 3-2 for a plan to preserve open space and put more homes near transit at the former military site. While Greenbelt Alliance and the Community Coalition for a Sustainable Concord were pleased with the overall outcome, we were also told that many details would be hammered out in subsequent planning documents, particularly in the Area Plan. Now itís time to see if those commitments have been upheld.
Take Action: Attend the Planning Commission meeting on Wednesday, January 19, to find out more about the reuse plans for the former weapons station. If you can't make the meeting, watch it online (click "watch TV").
