FROM:       Sharon Jones
                 Facilities and Real Property Manager

SUBJECT:  Civic Center Project (PWC 8520), Draft Relocation Plan
                 39156-39200 State Street in Fremont, California
                 30-Day Public Review and Comment Period

The City of Fremont is planning for the development of a new Civic Center, a component of the City’s existing Downtown Community Plan (“Downtown Plan”) which was adopted by the Fremont City Council in 2012 and amended in July of 2014. 

As a component of the broader Downtown Plan, the Civic Center Project (“Project”) includes the construction of a new community center, city administration building, public plaza, parking garage, retail space as well as a new street.  The Project area is comprised of a single city block bounded by Capitol Avenue, State Street, Liberty Street and a new public road, known as New Middle Road.

The City has made an offer to purchase a privately owned commercial property located at 39156-39200 State Street in Fremont, California (“Property”) as part of the Project. 

As part of the planning process for the Project, the City has retained the services of Associated Right of Way Services, Inc. (“AR/WS”) to prepare a Draft Relocation Plan (“Draft Plan”) that considers the needs of the businesses occupying the Property and addresses the availability of potential replacement sites in the surrounding area.  Most importantly, this Draft Plan describes the City’s commitment to provide non-residential relocation assistance to the eligible tenants.

The public is invited to review a copy of the Draft Plan and submit comments.  Comments will help to shape this Draft Plan and will be included in the Final Relocation Plan that will be presented to the Fremont City Council prior to the end of May 2016.

If any members of the public would like to make comments on the Draft Plan, they should contact the City’s Relocation Planning Consultant:
