This coming Tuesday, February 26, Sunnyvale City Council will give direction on the Lawrence Station Area Plan. The plan they will review, crafted with input from the Citizens Advisory Committee, proposes to transform the disjointed area into a mixed used neighborhood with much better pedestrian and bike connectivity, access to the station, and green space. The issues that may draw debate at City Council are the level of density and whether to allow housing. The Planning Commission passed the plan on a 7-0 vote, with a recommendation that affordable housing and sustainability measures be included.
Sunnyvale Cool recommends that community members who care about creating a compact, walkable, mixed-use neighborhood center at Lawrence with sufficient housing–including affordable housing–to improve Sunnyvale’s Jobs:Housing imbalance to e-mail City Council and speak in favor of the work of the Citizens’ Advisory Group on Tuesday.
