Please join us virtually on Wednesday, April 22nd from 6:30-8:00pm to provide feedback on potential street designs for the Centerville Complete Streets project. Street design alternatives include different options for number of travel lanes, parking, bicycle facilities, landscaping, outdoor seating, transit amenities, and pedestrian crossing improvements.
This virtual community meeting will be interactive and conducted using Zoom, an online video/audio conferencing platform. Meeting participants can join by desktop, tablet, or phone. The meeting will include a presentation describing the design alternatives followed by an interactive session where community members will discuss and provide input.
The meeting organizer will follow up with registrants on instructions of how to access the Zoom meeting closer to the event date.
The Centerville Complete Streets project will improve segments of Fremont Boulevard (Alder to Eggers), Thornton Avenue and Peralta Boulevard.
The project site is located in the heart of the Centerville commercial district and within close proximity to numerous schools, businesses, AC Transit bus lines, and the Centerville Altamont Corridor Express (ACE)/Amtrak train station. Many of the area roadways are in poor condition and were developed to old state highway standards (former State Route 84) focused on vehicle traffic with wide lanes and intersections. There are gaps in the sidewalk and bicycle lanes, and an overall lack of improvements for bicycles and pedestrians. The recent relinquishment of SR 84 allows the City to have local control over this street right-of-way to repave the streets and implement “complete streets” improvements to enhance safety and mobility for all users, including drivers, pedestrians, bicyclists, school children, and businesses
As part of the project, the City is conducting an extensive community engagement process to hear from stakeholders, including residents, schools, businesses, transit providers, and pedestrian and bicycle groups, on the project’s design. The community will be engaged throughout the project, including three community meeting.This website will be updated with upcoming community meeting dates and materials. Tentative dates for the community engagement events are outlined below.
