Thursday, December 18, 2003

The Contra Costa County Community Development Department is hosting the second workshop in a series of three to gather your ideas on how to improve pedestrian and bicycle access to the Pleasant Hill BART station (generally from Bancroft to BART). This workshop will go over some of the issues raised at the first workshop and to take any additional input on the alternatives. The outcome of this effort will be a preferred design for a new shortcut path and signage. 

This process is being conducted in cooperation with the cities of Concord and Walnut Creek, BART and the Contra Costa County Redevelopment Agency. MIG and Beneficial Designs have been selected to assist in the development of a preferred design of the new shortcut path and signage/wayfinding system.

Meet at the Contra Costa Transportation Authority
3478 Buskirk Avenue, Suite 100, Pleasant Hill (This is in the "Hookston Square" complex)

Directions and a map to this location can be found here.

The second workshop will focus on:

A draft report on the issues raised at the first workshop is currently being developed and will be provided at the second workshop and available on the project website the week of December 8th on the "Announcements" page. This will also include the additional options suggested at the meeting. It will also be available for download on this site prior to the meeting.
