It’s been almost six months since the Vallejo community weighed in on a series of Draft Scenarios that paint alternate visions of how Vallejo should grow within the next 25 years.
Since late spring when the General Plan Working Group and Economic Vitality Commission made added recommendations to these scenarios, these visioning documents that would uniquely shape the city’s character, land use and connections have been vetted further by the Planning Commission and lastly adopted by the City Council.
New workshops start September 30
Now the results of this vetting, which includes an analysis of fiscal, traffic and public health impacts, is being presented to the Vallejo community at a series of workshops, starting on September 30. What’s at stake with this go-around is the formation of a consensus of opinion about what the Preferred Scenario should look like.
It’s not an either/or proposition says City of Vallejo Senior Planner Mark Hoffheimer. All of the current draft scenarios contain elements that reflect the community’s pride of place (and desire to elevate its tourism potential), the universal love for its iconic waterfront and recognition of Vallejo’s location as a unique transportation hub. It’s more likely, Hoffheimer adds, that the Preferred Scenario will contain a combination of concepts from all three Draft Scenarios.
This is no puff piece document. The Preferred Scenario will become the foundation for the General Plan Update, impacting zoning and other planning decisions for many years to come.
