Alhambra Highlands Project

Council Moves on Alhambra Highlands Project

At the September 21 city council meeting, the next steps in the Alhambra Highlands negotiation process were discussed. Vice Mayor Avila Farias requested the agenda item after community groups made ongoing requests for headway to be made on this project. In July, city council authorized execution of the Negotiation Agreement with the developer to see if a price could be reached for 297.6 acres regarding Alhambra Highlands for preservation as open space. 

Vice Mayor Avila Farias said, “We really need to put the pen to paper and put together a quantifiable plan that starts with having a project manager on this that deals with this day in and out and brings the stakeholders. We need to show that we are real about this and committed to this and we’re ready to exhaust every possible resource to make this a tangible goal for the City of Martinez and its residents. I’d like us to commit to a work plan, explore funding sources, bring the stakeholders, and really have that everyday engagement that this project so desperately needs.”

Council reached unanimous consent to direct the city manager to appoint a project manager, develop a work plan to identify potential funding sources, and create a timeline of major milestones. The council will place the appointment of a project manager on the October 19 city council meeting agenda.
