Plan to Change Land-Use Designations throughout Airport
September 13, 2010
Revised Sept. 15, 2010
The City has released a proposal to adjust zoning (land use) district boundaries at the airport to reflect existing uses as well as planned development outlined in the Airport Master Plan adopted in 2002. Two maps showing the existing and planned zoning boundaries are available at the Hayward City website.
The zoning districts within the 543 acre airport include:
Air Terminal - Operations (AT-O)
Air Terminal - Aviation Commercial (AT-AC)
Air Terminal - Commercial (AT-C)
Air Terminal - Recreational (AT-R)
Air Terminal - Industrial Park (AT-IP)
Air Terminal - Medium Density Residential (AT-RM) (presently limited to Skywest Town Homes)
The significant areas of change are:
Limiting the Operations district to the runway, related outdoor storage for aircraft, and taxiways.
Expanding the existing Recreational district boundary to include the Skywest Golf Course leased and operated by Hayward Area Parks and Recreation District.
The 30 acre parcel formerly occupied by the Air National Guard, which includes a city fire station, will change from an Operations district to an Aviation Commercial district to accomodate existing and future aviation-related commercial uses.
Changing a 3 acre portion of the former National Guard site along West Winton Avenue from an Operations district to a Commercial district to allow development of commercial uses along West Winton.
The City has issued a notice that the rezoning action will have no significant environmental impacts. This "negative declaration" is dated September 1. Citizens may submit written comments on the negative declaration, as well as the rezoning proposal, until 5 p.m. September 16. Comments should be addressed to the Planning Director, City of Hayward, 777 B St., Hayward 94541 (fax 583-3649).
A hearing on the proposed rezoning will be held by the City's planning commission on September 23 at 7 p.m. in the City Council Chamber at City Hall. If the planning commission recommends approval to the city council, the proposal will be heard by the city council on October 26 at 7 p.m. If the commission denies the plan, the denial is final unless appealed to the city council within 10 days of the denial.
