A vision for North Downtown

Post Date:07/10/2017 5:12 PM

The vision for North Downtown Walnut Creek is coming into focus!

Come to a community workshop on Tuesday, July 25 from 6 to 8 p.m. to take a look at proposed streetscape designs and land use and circulation plans, and provide feedback. The workshop will be held at the Civic Park Community Center Assembly Hall.

North Downtown is an area of diverse land uses extending from Civic Drive to Parkside Drive, and from Highway 680 to the Iron Horse Trail. Looking forward 20 years or more, the Specific Plan is being prepared in collaboration with residents, local businesses and landowners to provide guidance on preferred land uses and transportation links, various improvements, and design guidelines.

An advisory committee has been meeting since May 2016 to help develop the Specific Plan. In addition to six advisory committee meetings, there have been two community workshops, followed by two community surveys, designed to gather ideas from a broad spectrum of the community.

Those ideas have been reviewed and consolidated to create a proposed land use and circulation plan, which will be the focus of the July 25 workshop.

All interested individuals are welcome to participate.  Light snacks will be provided.

Please note that this is the last community workshop scheduled for this project.  There are additional ways to provide your input at future committee, commission and council meetings.  Please visit the project website to sign up for email notifications of future meetings and learn more about the North Downtown Specific Plan at
