Help Guide Fremont’s Future! The City of Fremont has several initiatives underway that call for community involvement and collaboration. Please take a few minutes to learn about the work that is being planned and/or is currently taking place in our community. Several of these projects include opportunities to meet virtually with staff and consultants, provide feedback through surveys or just become more familiar through the dedicated online forum. While we currently aren't able to hold traditional in-person community meetings due to COVID-19, the City is still dedicated to receiving community input to help leverage alignment and drive community-informed decisions.
Safe Parking Strategy

Climate Action Plan Update
The City of Fremont is planning for a future that addresses climate change, improves our quality of life, promotes equity, and bolsters resiliency across our community. We are updating Fremont’s Climate Action Plan (CAP), and we want your input! Weigh in on preliminary ideas for climate action measures, propose new ideas, and respond to feedback submitted by other participants by visiting our forum, which will remain open through January 2021.
Parks and Recreation Master Plan Needs Assessment Survey
Help us update our Parks and Recreation Master Plan. We're asking Fremont residents what is important to include in the Master Plan and what the future of Parks and Recreation should include in Fremont. The Master Plan will provide guidance on how to meet the demands for future recreational, programming, environmental, and maintenance needs, as well as to establish priorities for facility improvements, future park and trail development, and land acquisitions. Learn more about this ongoing initiative.
Centerville Complete Streets
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.

Sabercat Trail Extension Project
The City of Fremont’s I-680 Sabercat Bridge & Trail (Irvington BART to Ohlone College) will build a landmark bicycle and pedestrian gateway into Fremont. The trail will cross the canyon of Interstate 680 and create a bicycle/ pedestrian connection over or under the Union Pacific Railroad (UPRR)/BART tracks.
