Title
Staff Report for Work Session on Bay Fair Transit-Oriented Development (TOD) Specific Plan - Draft Street Design and Development Scenario Concepts

Staffreport
SUMMARY

This report is for information only and no action is required. Staff seeks City Council feedback on the following topics and issues for the Bay Fair TOD Specific Plan: 1) draft visioning/desired outcomes, 2) preliminary street design and public realm, 3) preliminary development scenarios, and 4) potential policy topics to be addressed in the Bay Fair TOD Specific Plan.

The study includes the Bay Fair BART station, Bayfair Center, Fairmont Square and Fashion Faire Place. A Plan Area Map is included as Attachment 1.
