Alameda took a big step in adding much needed housing when the City Council on Tuesday (July 10) unanimously approved the EIR and Master Plan for Alameda Marina, a housing project endorsed by the Bay Area Council’s Workforce Housing Committee. The proposed project is the culmination of more than two years of work with city planners and the community. The plan will provide 760 new units of housing, including 103 designated as affordable. In addition to providing housing, the project also includes a $57 million investment to upgrade infrastructure on site, including new service roads, a dockyard for marine services, Bay Trail extension, $35 million to rebuild a crumbling seawall, and more. The Bay Area Council thanks the City of Alameda for approving this project and doing its part to provide housing for our growing region.
