Community Meeting for Mission San Jose Commercial Strategy Study

Mission San Jose

In June 2018, the Fremont City Council directed City of Fremont staff to study the Mission San Jose Town Center to determine the potential for commercial success in the area—with special emphasis on retail, restaurants, entertainment options, and mixed use developments that include housing—and to develop strategies to support it accordingly. The Mission San Jose Town Center is a commercial district near Washington Boulevard and Mission Boulevard, anchored by the historic Mission San Jose church and museum.

The City has concluded the study, and City Council reviewed and accepted the final report for the study in May 2019. Key strategies identified in the study include focusing revitalization efforts on a smaller “primary commercial area” within the Town Center; enhancing the identity of the area through marketing, events, and signage; incorporating a leasing/merchandising plan for property owners and commercial tenants; and improving the public realm.

City staff is conducting another community meeting to outline the findings in detail. The community is invited to attend this meeting on Thursday, July 25 from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Olive Hyde Center, located at 123 Washington Blvd in Fremont.

The Study Report and the City Council Report are available at Mission San Jose Study.

For more information, please contact Wayne Morris, Deputy Community Development Director, at 510-494-4729 or by email.
