Snider Plaza REAP Strategy

January 31, 2020

Snider Plaza Concept Plan Presentations Postponed
 

Merchant and Property Owner presentations on concept design plans for Snider Plaza will not take place on Friday, February 7 as originally planned. 

Although City staff and design consultants are close to finalizing exhibits that lay out proposed improvements, unfortunately, needed information will not be available by next week.  Gaining your input is a crucial step in moving this process forward.  City staff will notify you as soon as possible regarding new meeting times.  Please keep an eye out for the updated schedule.  We will use email and regular mail to let you know. Thank you for your continued interest.  We apologize for the inconvenience.   

Following presentations to merchants and business owners, residents will have a chance to view and comment on the design concepts prior to the City Council's consideration.  A date for that community meeting has not been finalized.  When set, City staff will publicize that date and time on the website and on social media. 

Background information

Parking, infrastructure, landscaping and other desired improvements to Snider Plaza have been the focus of multiple City Councils for many years. In 2018, the City engaged Paris Rutherford of the Catalyst Group to facilitate a series of public meetings to identify such improvements and make follow-up recommendations to the City.  Additional information about that effort can be found here.

Acting on these recommendations, the City engaged Pacheco Koch civil engineers to design needed water and sewer replacement that is slated to begin later this year.  The City has also re-engaged the Catalyst Group to facilitate the detailed design of related landscape and other amenity improvements working with Space Between Landscape Studio.  This design includes parking management implementation strategies and will involve the identification of potential funding strategies associated with levels of improvements involving: restoration, enhancement, amenities and programming options ("REAP") for the area.  City Staff has organized these options into a formal strategy that was presented to City Council in an open work session on Tuesday, January 21.  The REAP Strategy provides key decision points and a roadmap for implementing these potential improvements.
