The Design Review Board will hold a public hearing to review the proposed design for Gateway Park, a new regional park located near the east touchdown of the Bay Bridge in Oakland, Alameda County. This park would encompass 170 acres and include various parcels from the waterfront near the Bay Bridge touchdown to Mandela Parkway in West Oakland. The park would provide access to the shoreline, enhance bicycle and pedestrian connections to the new east span of the Bay Bridge and other local trails, include active and passive recreation opportunities, and highlight the natural, industrial maritime, and transportation history of the area. Public access proposed within the Commissionís Bay and 100-foot shoreline band jurisdictions would include a boat launch area, a pier, open space and a variety of trails.
