Work on a North Downtown Specific Plan Begins 

The City of Walnut Creek is currently accepting applications from interested individuals to be a part of an advisory committee that will counsel the city council, planning commission, city staff, and the lead consultant responsible for the preparation of a specific plan for the north downtown area (180 acres of land extending generally from Highway 680 to Civic Drive and the Iron Horse Trail, and Parkside Drive to Civic Drive.)  

The advisory committee will be comprised of: two members of the city council chosen by the full city council; one member of each of the city’s five commissions, including the planning, transportation, arts, design review, and parks, recreation and open space; and up to six members appointed “at large” to represent the north downtown community. To become a member of the advisory committee, you must own property or a business, or reside within the north downtown area, and the city council must take formal action to confirm your membership on the advisory committee.

Meetings are expected to be scheduled for the fourth Monday of the month at 6:30pm in the Walnut Creek City Hall, Third Floor Conference Room, 1666 N. Main Street. Advisory committee members are appointed to serve for the duration of the planning process (expected to conclude in November 2017) without compensation. To view the advisory committee project objectives and committee structure, a map of the north downtown specific plan area, or to download the Word file for this application, go to www.walnut‐creek/northdowntown. For further information regarding planning and development projects and programs in Walnut Creek, please visit the city’s website at www.walnut‐creek.org. The deadline for applications is 5pm May 6, 2016, and the council will appoint committee members at the May 17 council meeting.

You may also take your completed membership application to the city clerk’s office on the 3rd floor of City Hall, 1666 N. Main Street, or email it to smartinez@walnut‐creek.org.
