Well, wasn’t 2018 an exciting year! On November 6th, Measure JJ passed with 55% of the vote, authorizing a General Plan Amendment that would allow development – including housing – on the Baylands. While UPC was not involved in the campaign, we commend the entire City Council as well as local Brisbane supporters, all of whom demonstrated courage, strength and leadership by advancing this project while ensuring local control.
The election result is a critical step in advancing the project, but it is the beginning rather than the end of a process that will rely on community involvement at each project stage. We look forward to continuing our dialogue with community members about the new Specific Plan that will align with key elements of the recently approved General Plan Amendment. We are 100% committed to working with the City of Brisbane to get this process started in early 2019. Please do not hesitate to reach out to me directly with your ideas and questions, or submit a comment at our website: www.BrisbaneBaylands.com/GetInvolved
There’s much to do! In the meantime, have a Happy Holiday and a Happy New Year!
