At their May 18 meeting, the City Council provided direction to staff to get community feedback and initiate a letter of interest for two “priority development areas” (PDA) in San Rafael. Since then, City staff created a webpage with an online engagement platform to collect comments and held seven virtual community meetings. The meetings provided an opportunity for participants to get a better understanding of PDAs, the current thinking and recommendations, ask questions, and learn about next steps. The feedback allowed staff to build an extensive list of FAQ’s, check them out.
At the Monday evening City Council meeting, City staff will present a report and draft resolution to formalize a request to nominate the two new PDAs: North San Rafael/Northgate and Southeast San Rafael/Canal.
