CONTRA COSTA COUNTY REDEVELOPMENT AGENCY (Project Sponsor) - PACIFIC GAS & ELECTRIC COMPANY, BAY POINT VENTURE ONE, LLC, and JOYCE TROST (Owners), County Files #GP03-0009 & #DP00-3003: A proposed amendment to the Contra Costa County General Plan (2005-2020) to support the implementation of the Bay Point Waterfront Strategic Plan. The proposed General Plan Amendment includes amending the Land Use Element as follows: a) a minor adjustment to the Urban Limit Line (ULL) Map to shift the location of the ULL (involving less than 30 acres of land) within the project, resulting in the net conversion of 5.47 acres of land to urban use; b) change to the land use designations on the Land Use Element Map for some portions of the project site, including approximately 10 acres of Commercial Recreation (CR) and 13 acres of Open Space (OS) to be re-designated to Multiple-family Residential - Medium Density (MM), and re-designating approximately 10 acres of Open Space to Park and Recreation (PR); and c) addition of clarifying language to the text under Policy # 3-77, “Policies for the Bay Point Area”, to incorporate and reference the provisions of the Bay Point Waterfront Strategic Plan as providing additional guidance for the development of the waterfront area. A second component to the proposed General Plan Amendment includes amending the Transportation and Circulation Element to: a) add the extension of two roads, Pacifica Avenue Extension and Alves Lane Extension to the Roadway Network Map; and b) update the Bicycle Facilities Map to reflect new, proposed bicycle facilities to serve the waterfront area. These changes to the General Plan would allow for the reconfiguration of the marina, development of marina-related residential neighborhood, and development of new park and recreation area and provide consistency between the General Plan and the Bay Point Waterfront Strategic Plan. Finally, there is a proposal to modify the Development Plan (County File #DP00-3003), amending the Land Use Map for the Bay Point Planned-Unit District consistent with changes to the General Plan Land Use Element as proposed under the General Plan Amendment (County File #GP03-0009). The approximately 190-acre Strategic Plan Area, which is partially within the adopted Bay Point Redevelopment Area (Redevelopment Area), is located north of the Union Pacific Railroad tracks, at the terminus of McAvoy Road in the Bay Point area of eastern Contra Costa County. (Assessor’s Parcel Numbers 098-020-023, 098-020-024, 098-020-025, 098-250-013, 098-250-019 and 098-250-020) (Continued from 6/23/09). PR
