In June 2018, the Fremont City Council directed City 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 and Mission boulevards, anchored by the historic Mission San Jose church and museum.
City staff recently hired a consultant team with expertise in retail market analysis and urban planning to assist in completing the study and to make recommendations on strategies that can positively impact the Mission San Jose Town Center. The consultant team has also been tasked with analyzing the Ohlone Village Shopping Center.
City staff and the consultant team will be holding a community meeting on Thursday, October 18 from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Olive Hyde Program Center located at 123 Washington Blvd. to share information with the community and collect input to inform the study.
Once the study has been completed, the results will be presented at a future City Council meeting. If you would like to receive updates on this study, please sign up for our Mission San Jose Study Notify Me Email List.
