The Bay Fair TOD Specific Plan was adopted by the San Leandro City Council in 2018, following an extensive community engagement and planning process. The Specific Plan sets a vision for the Bay Fair area to become a walkable, transit-oriented community hub, with public gathering spaces and a mix of retail, neighborhood services, housing, and office space. To be consistent with this vision, the City of San Leandro is updating the Zoning Code to add new design and development regulations for the Bay Fair area, as recommended under the approved Plan.
