Waterfront Committee Considers General Plan

At its final meeting on April 2, 2014, the Albany Waterfront Committee considered issues related to the Albany General Plan and the future of the Albany waterfront.  Committee members were provided with an overview of the existing General Plan and were informally polled about whether the updated Plan should include a separate “Waterfront Element” articulating the City’s policies for the shoreline area.  The Waterfront Element would summarize existing city, regional, and state policies for the area, including planned improvements to park and open space lands.  It would also address natural resource conservation and issues relating to sea level rise.  The Waterfront Element will carry forward existing, adopted City policies for Golden Gate Fields.
