Title

 

PLN16-0186 and -0187 - Alameda Point Site A - Street Names for Blocks 6 and 7 - Applicant: Trumark Homes, LLC.  The Planning Board will hold a public hearing to consider two additional street names for the paseos at the approved residential development at Blocks 6 and 7, which are located between Coronado Avenue and West Atlantic Avenue at Alameda Point.  The proposed street names are Halo Lane and Starling Lane, which are names of former naval ships stationed at NAS Alameda on the City’s Official Street Naming List.  The naming of these streets is exempt from the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) pursuant to CEQA Guidelines Section 15061(b)(3).

 

Body

 

BACKGROUND

 

The City Council Street Naming Policy assigns responsibility to the Historical Advisory Board (HAB) to maintain a list of names to be used for City streets and facilities.  The Planning Board is then responsible for applying the names for new streets as part of new development. 

 

In 2016, the Planning Board approved new street names for Alameda Point Site A and approved the Development Plan and Design Review for residential development at Blocks 6 and 7.  The approved Blocks 6 and 7 residential townhomes are now going through building permit plan review where individual homes will receive address assignments.  It was determined by the City’s Building Official during plan review that the proposed residential units facing the two interior paseos (between Coronado and West Atlantic Avenues) will need addresses off the paseos, which were not contemplated to be named in 2016.

 

DISCUSSION

 

Home-builder Trumark Homes is requesting approval of two street names for the paseos within Blocks 6 and 7, Halo Lane and Starling Lane, respectively.  The names were selected off the HAB-approved Official Street Names List, and they belong to former navy vessels previously stationed at Naval Air Station Alameda.  The selected names complement the names of the other streets at Site A that carry the same naval theme (Exhibit 1).

 

ENVIRONMENTAL REVIEW

 

The naming of the two paseos at Blocks 6 and 7 is exempt from the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) pursuant to CEQA Guidelines Section 15061(b)(3), because it can be seen with certainty that the naming of the two paseos will not create any significant impacts on the physical environment.

 

RECOMMENDATION

 

Staff recommends the Planning Board approve the proposed street names for Blocks 6 and 7 as set forth in the Draft Resolution (Exhibit 2).

 

 

Respectfully submitted,
