Community invited to neighborhood meetings on weapons station Reuse Plan

The public is invited to the attend one of the three upcoming neighborhood meetings on the progress of the Reuse Plan for the former Concord Naval Weapons Station.

The City will present the land use plan and latest updates on the Reuse Project to residents, and will solicit further neighborhood input regarding the project.

The first meeting is slated for Thursday, April 26 at 6:30 p.m. at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 1590 Denkinger Road. The second meeting will be held on Monday, April 30 at 6:30 p.m. at the First Lutheran Church, 4000 Concord Blvd. The final meeting is set for Wednesday, May 2 at 7:30 p.m. at Cambridge Elementary School, 1135 Lacey Lane. 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 20 years, the remaining area will be developed in phases.

Last year, the City held three community workshops, monthly Community Advisory Committee meetings as well as Planning Commission and City Council study sessions to provide opportunities for the community to provide input to the master developer, Lennar l Five Point, as they prepared a more detailed land use plan and began to prepare the draft Specific Plan. The Specific Plan preparation, technical studies and environmental analysis will be conducted over the remainder of this year before it will be considered for adoption by the City Council in 2019.
