Document Description
The Station District Specific Plan (SDSP) is intended to guide future development of an approximately 470-acre Planning Area around the Union City BART Station. Public, institutional and civic uses (41.1%) are the most prominent existing land uses in the Planning Area, followed by industrial uses (13.8%), residential uses (9.9%), and vacant land (9.6%). Union City Station District Priority Development Area Profile, April 2020, outlines in depth existing conditions in the Planning Area, and is accessible at https://www.unioncity.org/DocumentCenter/View/3702/PDA-Profile Union City has had BART service since the system’s inception in 1976. In 1994, the City adopted the Decoto Industrial Park Study Area Specific Plan for a 440-acre area centered around the BART station and extending northeast to encompass the Decoto Industrial Park; this plan has been amended several times since. The Station District Specific Plan will replace the DIPSA Specific Plan. The Union City 2040 General Plan adopted in December 2019 calls for Station District to continue evolving into a higher intensity, walkable, transit-oriented district. Consistent with the General Plan, the SDSP—currently in preparation—envisions the area to contain a mix of residential, employment, retail, and civic uses, complemented by engaging and attractive public space. These uses will be distributed, mixed, and focused in different subareas throughout the Station District, as identified in the General Plan. The SDSP will also aim to enhance multimodal connectivity, in which getting around by walking, biking, and transit is convenient and enjoyable. The project team has developed a set of planning considerations for each subarea of the Specific Plan. The subareas are consistent with those identified in the General Plan, with a small number of refinements to subarea boundaries. Subarea boundaries are shown in Figure 2. These subareas are: The Core, Station East, Marketplace, Gateway, and Civic Center. For more information visit the project website. https://www.unioncity.org/422/StationDistrictSP
