The City of Richmond is seeking community input about how to best use the land at Point Molate for the benefit of all. Key areas for visioning include restoration and adaptive reuse of the Winehaven Historic District and locations for the minimum of 670 houses required under settlement terms of litigation challenging the City’s denial of the proposed gambling casino. The settlement requires developing the property in a manner that is generally consistent with the Point Molate Reuse Plan (Reuse Plan), which was first adopted by the City Council in 1997 and incorporated in large part into the City’s General Plan 2030. The Reuse Plan includes completion of the Bay Trail and preservation of at least 70 percent of the 270 acres of dry land at Point Molate as shoreline park and hillside open space. In addition, East Bay Regional Park District’s (EBRPD) Master Plan includes a potential Regional Shoreline park at Point Molate.

TRAC attaches high priority to completing and opening the Bay Trail along Point Molate’s 1.5-mile shoreline. This would speed public access and enjoyment of this beautiful shoreline, since this Bay Trail already has been designed by EBRPD in partnership with the City and a Mitigated Negative Declaration already has been completed under CEQA. The design is consistent with "Don't fence me in" recommendations sent to City Manager Bill Lindsay by the City's Point Molate Community Advisory Committee “to provide exclosure fencing around buildings and potentially hazardous structures, rather than enclosure fencing of the Bay Trail”. CLICK HERE for information about the Point Molate Bay Trail, including the first section to be completed this September linking the bus stop at Castro Street and Tewksbury Avenue with the Stenmark Drive exit from I-580 (http://www.pointrichmond.com/baytrail/pointsanpablo.htm).
