Community Workshop #2: Visioning and Preliminary Design Plan
The second Community Workshop for the Hollydale Area Specific Plan was held at the Hollydale Park Plaza in the Community Room, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. on Wednesday, January 28, 2015. The workshop was well-attended with over 80 participants. Spanish translation was also provided. This public meeting was preceded by a meeting with the Hollydale Area Specific Plan Steering Committee.
The purpose of these meetings was to get additional public input on the Preliminary Design Plan in the early stages of this project. The information was the same as that presented in December 2014.
After introductions, the consultant team presented PowerPoint slides showing the Specific Plan area boundaries, background and purpose of the Specific Plan, existing conditions related to land use, streetscapes and the circulation network, as well as a summary of key demographic information. The presentation also included preliminary land use, circulation and urban design concepts, including streetscape improvements.
The Preliminary Plan was well-received by participants in both meetings. The discussion included implementation issues as well as the major issues facing Hollydale including the future of the Garfield Retail Area, multi-family and mixed use opportunities, industrial uses, and the proposed Eco-Rapid Transit among others. Detailed comments are noted in the Discussion Notes Summary below.
