Document Description
The Station District Specific Plan (SDSP) is intended to guide future development of an approximately 471-acre Planning Area around the Union City Intermodal/BART Station. Union City has had BART service since the system’s inception in 1976. In 1994, the City adopted the Decoto Industrial Park Study Area (DIPSA) 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 SDSP will replace the DIPSA Specific Plan. The Union City 2040 General Plan, adopted in December 2019, calls for the Station District to continue evolving into a higher intensity, walkable, transit-oriented district. Consistent with the General Plan, the SDSP 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. 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
