Join us 10/13 at the public hearing regarding the General Plan Update

posted Oct 6, 2011, 5:25 PM by Edward Wustenhoff   [ updated Oct 12, 2011, 2:48 PM ]

We received a notice of a public hearing regarding the General Plan Update.  The hearing will be held on Thursday, October 13th at 7pm at The Council Chambers at 3300 Capitol Avenue, Fremont.

We are asking all Save Kimber Park supporters to attend. Wear something GREEN or even better wear your “Save Kimber Park” T-shirt if you have one.  If you need one and don’t have one yet contact Sunil Dhar at sunil.dhar@gmail.com to see if he has your size left.

We believe it is important for the Save Kimber Park group to show a strong presence at this meeting in support of the 2030 Draft General Plan. 

The 2030 Draft General Plan changes the existing General Plan and designates the horseshoe shaped lot in Kimber Park as private open space so that the General Plan now better aligns with the already existing Land Use designation.

This public hearing is not regarding any specific proposed development on the Mission Hills Tennis and Swim Club property…but we do believe it is important for us to be there and to make our presence publicly known again and our position well established regarding the new General Plan.

Shown below is information regarding the Public Hearing that we received via email.  It has all the important date, time and location information.   If you want to look in greater detail and the Draft General Plan all of the information is available at:  http://www.fremont.gov/index.aspx?nid=1188

Hello Save Kimber Park Supporters!

As most of you know the Save Kimber Park committee hosted and moderated a meeting with Ed Daou and two of his associates last Friday, June 10th. An article in the Tri City Voice on Tuesday, June 14th did a great job summarizing the meeting. Here is a link to the article if you would like to read it.

If you were not able to attend the meeting we have sent out a separate pdf document that provides a brief summary. It’s not the same as being there in person but at least you can have some idea of what was discussed.Let us know if you did not receive the email and would like a copy.

Thank you for the amazing turn-out!
