Document Description
The proposed Bidwell Park would be located on the former Bidwell Elementary School campus at 175 Fairway Street 78G-2704-002-01), in the southeastern portion of the City of Hayward in Alameda County. The project site is approximately 10.5 acres. The project would expand the existing Bidwell Park to include the former Bidwell Elementary School campus and improve the existing park facilities. The existing main school building would be renovated into a community center with classrooms, a kitchen, and event space. The rear building would be demolished to create additional garden and lawn space. The existing garden, playgrounds, and blacktops would be demolished to create redesigned play and picnic spaces. The field would be landscaped along the perimeter to create screening from neighbors, planted with trees along the southwest portion to create wooden areas, and two-fenced dog parks would be installed on the eastern corner of the park. The existing perimeter fencing along Fairway and Rousseau streets would be removed. Approximately 75,200 square feet of impervious surface would be added on site, for a total area of 183,500 square feet of impervious surface. A new drop-off zone on Fairway Street would be created in front of a new entry plaza and entrance to the community center. The new 25-foot drop-off zone would be located near the existing drop-off zone in front of the school, with a new curb line to allow vehicles to pull out of the travel lane, and the adjacent sidewalk would be re-aligned. On-street parking on Fairway Street would be reconfigured from parallel to diagonal parking to create three additional (net new) spaces at the northwest corner of the site. Similarly, five net new parking spaces would be created along Rousseau Street. The on-street diagonal parking would require the realignment of the curb and sidewalk along the street to accommodate the parking reconfiguration. The existing school parking lot would be reconfigured to include six net new parking spaces for a total of 21 spaces. With both the on-site and on-street parking changes, the project would result in a net increase of 14 new parking spaces.
