I was one of only a few people that showed up to the city’s final community meeting on its grand ambitions for 800 acres in and around the former NUMMI plant. You didn’t really miss anything other than free snickerdoodles and ginger snaps.
Union Pacific is moving ahead with selling most of the land it purchased from NUMMI last year. It’ll probably keep about 15 acres near the future BART station for a relatively small rail yard. The vision being laid out is mostly offices, technology campuses and industrial sites. Housing would mostly be confined to land sandwiched between the future BART station and I-680 across from the Weibel neighborhood.
No council members showed up to the meeting. They’ll get the presentation in February.
