*Millbrae Station Area Plan Public Hearing

Millbrae City Council will conduct a public hearing on the Millbrae Station Area Specific Plan Update and Final Environmental Impact Report. There will also be a study session on January 5, 2016. Millbrae Station Area Specific Plan was initially developed and adopted in 1998 and is being proposed to be updated. The updated Plan would guide future public improvements and private development in the Plan Area over the next 25 years. Associated with the Specific Plan update are amendments to the General Plan and Zoning Ordinance. The Environmental Impact Report (“EIR”) has been prepared in accordance with the California Environmental Quality Act. The project is composed of the update to the Specific Plan and two specific Oriented Development (TOD) proposals, referred to as TOD #1 and TOD #2. While the approval and construction of the two TOD proposals are part of the overall project studied in the EIR, the findings and approvals being considered at this meeting relate only to the Specific Plan and not to either of the TOD proposals, which would be considered at a later date. The City Council will consider 1) certification of the Final Environmental Impact Report, and 2) adoption of the Specific Plan and related General Plan and Zoning Ordinance amendments. See Millbrae’s page on the project for more...

Update on Millbrae Station Area Specific Plan

Update on Millbrae Station Area Specific Plan

City Council of Millbrae will hold a study session on the Millbrae Station Area Specific Plan (MSASP) on Tuesday, January 5 at 7:00 pm at City Hall. Following that, there will be a public hearing on the MSASP and the Final Environmental Impact Report on Tuesday, January 12 at 7:00 pm at City Hall. This gives you two chances to provide your voice and comments to this plan, which will have a big impact on the future of regional transportation moving forward. SVBC first got involved over the summer, partnering with other organizations to educate residents and stakeholders on some of the key issues . After reviewing the documents, we submitted several comment letters to city council, met with the developer working on one of two large projects planned for the site, and communicated with the BART Board of Directors. Primarily, we have worked to make the bicycle circulation stronger, so that it is easy to access the station from north, south, east, and west. The Plan includes a new bike/ped bridge over Highway 101 at Millbrae Avenue, connecting to the Bay Trail. We also have encouraged the city to take a more detailed look at El Camino Real and provide safe and comfortable connections on and across that street. You can see what changes have been made to the plan outside of bicycling at our partner’s site. Plan to attend one of the meetings to make your voice...
