District Invites Public to Nov. 8 Meeting in Fremont


The East Bay Regional Park District invites public participation at a scoping meeting to solve the overflow parking problems at the Stanford Avenue entrance to Mission Peak Regional Preserve in Fremont.

The meeting is set for Thursday, November 8, from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at the City of Fremont Teen Center, 39770 Paseo Padre Parkway.  This is a public meeting, open to all, including residents and park users who may be non-residents of Fremont.

The District is studying two conceptual parking area options inside the park, and a “No Project Alternative”.  Both new parking area options would include public restrooms (non-sewered, vault toilets), picnic tables, and vegetated infiltration swales that would serve to capture and treat parking area run-off and provide visual screening of the new staging areas.  Both new parking area options would provide approximately 300 spaces. 

On October 22, the Park District published a Notice of Preparation (NOP) of an Environmental Impact Report in accordance with the California Environmental Quality Act.  That notice, and the public scoping meeting notice are posted on their web site People can submit written comments on the NOP, either by email or regular mail by Friday, November 23rd, whether they attend the Scoping Meeting or not. 

People can comment or request additional information and be added to the project contact list by contacting the Planning Department at (510) 544-2340.
