The Seeno-owned developer of the former Concord Naval Weapons Station, Concord First Partners, and staff from the Local Reuse Authority will host two community meetings in December to present and discuss the development’s proposed term sheet before it goes to the City Council in January.
Crafting the term sheet is the next step in the planning process for the 5,046-acre site on the city’s northeast side, which has been on the city’s plate since the Navy abandoned it in 1999. The Navy officially designated it as surplus, making the city of Concord the local reuse authority for the site, which has 2,300 acres targeted for 13,000 units of housing and millions of square feet of commercial space.
Another 2,600 acres will become Thurgood Marshall Regional Park — Home of the Port Chicago 50.
The term sheet will establish the development guidelines and community benefits included in the future specific plan, studied in the environmental impact report, and memorialized in a disposition and development agreement. Those documents must be finalized before development begins or property is transferred.
The term sheet and its staff report will be available for public review Nov. 30.
Both community meetings will be held at the Concord Senior Center; the first at 6 p.m. Dec. 1 and the second at 6 p.m. Dec. 15.
The City Council will consider the term sheet at a special meeting Jan. 7.
