The working name to date for the area, in planning documents, has been “Alameda Town Center” which as drawn criticism from some residents, as the location is not in the center of Alameda, and it could be confused with South Shore Shopping Center which, for a brief time in recent history, was named Alameda Towne Centre.
City planning department staff have whittled the name down to seven candidates, but the survey also provides for write-ins. The seven choices listed in the survey are:
- FerryPoint Bay
- FerryPoint Station
- FerryPoint Village
- Seaplane Bay
- Seaplane Station
- Seaplane Village
City officials are keeping the survey open until 6:00 p.m. on Thursday, September 24th, and the results will be reported at a joint City Council and Planning Board meeting on September 25th.
