Density Bonus Law Ordinance up for Continuance Tonight

At the November 10th Planning Board meeting, the City of Alameda Planning Board was set to discuss a CEQA negative declaration on a proposed density bonus law ordinance. Then, the Alameda Sun published a cover story about the density bonus law ordinance, and the Nov. 10th Planning Board meeting was cancelled. The density bonus law comes up tonight at the Planning Board meeting.

But tonight at the Planning Board meeting, City Staff is requesting a continuance of the density bonus law discussion until some future unspecified date. It’s almost as if they don’t want to talk about it. We have advocated in the past that SunCal should examine the density bonus law as a way to build a fewer number of homes at Alameda Point but still cluster them in a transit-oriented-development – the density bonus law would permit that for sites that provide low-income housing and housing for seniors. But City Staff and SunCal refuse to consider that option, as they are determined to overturn Measure A. No doubt the plannig board will attempt to continue the density bonus law ordinance discussion until well after SunCal delivers their final master plan for Alameda Point.
