Planning Board to Review Master Plan for Jean Sweeney Open Space Park

The Planning Board will review a draft master plan for the proposed Jean Sweeney Open Space Park.

The Planning Board will review a draft master plan for the proposed Jean Sweeney Open Space Park.

At its Monday, December 16th meeting, the City of Alameda Planning Board will review and provide comment on a draft master plan for the proposed 22-acre Jean Sweeney Open Space Park, located on the former Alameda Beltline Railroad property.

Earlier this year, Alameda City Council approved six broad recreational uses for the park, which are:

  1. Walk and bike trails
  2. Natural open space
  3. Picnic areas
  4. Community gardens
  5. Natural playgrounds
  6. Open lawn areas.

The plan, developed for free by planning Board member and architect, Kristoffer Köster of KKDesign, based his design on those uses.

Active uses of the park are shifted to the outside edges of the property in his plan, and quieter uses are placed in central areas.

Parking lots would be provided at either end of the park, offering 180 spaces, and intended to keep park visitors from parking in nearby residential areas.

The planning board meets at 7:00 p.m. on Monday December 16th, in council chambers at Alameda City Hall, to review the full plan in detail. Members of the public will have the opportunity to provide input on the plan as well.
