Berkeley, California (Monday, February 01, 2021) - Help craft a vision for future development at the Ashby and North Berkeley BART stations at an online workshop Monday, February 8.

This initiative, a collaboration between the City of Berkeley and BART, is a multiyear effort to create a community-driven plan to improve access to these stations for everyone and provide much-needed affordable housing.

Monday, February 8, 6-8pm
Join on Zoom
Call in: (888) 475-2299
Meeting ID: 979 3568 4068; Password: 872131

This workshop is an opportunity to learn more about the planning process and provide your own input and insights into a draft “Vision and Priorities” statement for zoning and development at these stations, which outlines priorities around affordable housing, civic and open space, station access and transportation improvements, types of appropriate use, and building height, form, and urban design.

The event will include presentations, Q&A, and a live survey.

Reimagining Berkeley’s BART stations

This project aims to re-imagine the Ashby and North Berkeley BART stations as vibrant places that include housing, open space, and community amenities.

Planning for development at these stations is a multi-year, multi-phase process. We are working with BART to create zoning and site planning parameters that reflect a shared community vision for future development. As the property owner, BART will ultimately select the developer and oversee construction for each site. However, land use rules set by the City will shape how these developments look and what types of businesses and amenities they can include.

This planning effort is supported by a community advisory group and builds upon community engagement processes that have been underway for several years, including the recently completed Adeline Corridor Plan.

Stay informed about this project by joining our BART planning email list or visiting the project webpage.
