Subject: [CPEO-MEF] REUSE: New Strategy for Alameda Point (CA)
Council considers development proposal for Alameda Point

Alameda city leaders are proposing an overall development strategy for Alameda Point that breaks up the former Naval Air Station into neighborhoods for possible future homes, stores and businesses.

The goal is to jump-start entitlements -- the legal process for securing the right to develop a property for a particular use -- in the wake of a deal between the city and the U.S. Navy for a no-cost conveyance of the base.

The aim is also to provide the city with greater control of Alameda Point's future, as well as to spur competition among potential developers since the city could include price, infrastructure and other issues as part of an agreement, instead of just a developer's qualifications, according to officials.
