Richmond Bay Specific Plan (RBSP) and Final Environmental Impact Report (EIR) Available

The RBSP (formerly known as the South Shoreline Specific Plan) will facilitate the implementation of Richmond's new General Plan by establishing specific plan policies, regulations, and urban design standards for an approximately 375-acre area located in the City of Richmond, south of Interstate 580. The RBSP will focus on ways Richmond can develop a mixed-use district that is complementary to future development at the Richmond Field Station, future ferry service, and other area assets to create a sustainable shoreline district providing jobs, housing, transportation options, and opportunities for entertainment and recreation. This planning effort is being funded in part by a Priority Development Area Planning Grant from the Association of Bay Area Governments (ABAG) and the Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC).
