Where should Fremont’s Downtown be located?

15 Sep

Councilmember Dominic Dutra recently proposed that the current downtown plan proposed for capitol be moved to Warm Springs. This sure caused some uproar amongst the councilmembers. Councilmembers Harrison and Natarajan preferred to keep the plans as is.  Natarajan even took a few shots at Dutra about it “sending the wrong message” and a few words were exchanged.

    How about “all of the above”?

    A downtown near each BART station, plus revitalize the historic districts.

    Warm Springs is not the “center” of the city; I think we should stick with the current plan (Capitol) or Centerville. Overall, Fremont is going downhill anyway. If the city doesn’t get off the stick and do something soon, it won’t really matter where anyone wants the downtown to be located.

    I think there should be more options like the Mission Area in front of Ohlone College or maybe a suggestion button.

      Welcome to Fremont Politics. All we need now is Marty and your buddy West and it will be good times again.

      Not in Niles, infrastructure cannot support it. Besides, it is the nicest part of Fremont. City Hall located there would change it for the worst

    This scuttlebutt about Warm Springs started when The Block at Pacific Commons was announced last month (Actually in East Industrial but details, details). And people thought the plans amounted to a Downtown a la Walnut Creek with high-end shopping, the megaplex and possibly a urban village. I would like to see the Central Business District to develop into a Financial District with 10 story skyscrappers like even Campbell has. But there are smarter, more qualified people then myself at City Hall working on this

    I would love to see Centerville revitalized. The area there is run down and certainly needs a lift. I think it would make a great location for a “downtown” being in the center of the city and close to the Central Business District mentioned in the previous comment by Mr. Hilke.
