Pittsburg BART development community meeting

Last night, Kiran Goldman and I went to a community meeting about a mixed-use development at the Pittsburg/Bay Point BART station. Residents from the Pittsburg BARThood attended the meeting to voice their interest in the development and what they hope it will add to the community. Some residents said they could see a transit village creating a sense of community at the station. Downtown Walnut Creek and sidewalk cafes were mentioned as were grocery stores like Whole Foods, coffee shops, and bookstores. Pittsburg City Planner Leigha Schmidt says the plan is for the future and it will be a very long time before a plan turns into a development at the Pittsburg/Bay Point BART station. –Elizabeth Shemaria
