The City of Pittsburg received a grant of $308,000 from the Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC) to fund a Station Area Plan and a Specific Plan for the area surrounding a planned BART (eBART) station at the intersection of Railroad Avenue and State Route 4. The plans are intended to facilitate transit-oriented development through an increase in the intensity and density of development in the subject area, to improve the pedestrian, bus, bicycle and other linkages between the potential BART station and the surrounding community, and to develop design and development standards that will facilitate a vibrant pedestrian friendly mixed-use neighborhood. To read more about the eBART project, please see www.ebartproject.org.
