• Dublin May Meter Growth

  • The Dublin City Council seeks to slow the pace of residential growth in its 3,300-acre Eastern Dublin Specific Plan Area. The City Council directed staff during a study session on May 5, 2015, to return to the board in several months with options that range from lowering densities to establishing an annual residential permit cap. Councilmembers cited the drought, impacts on schools and traffic as the chief reasons for their decision. A permit cap could impact all residential developers while down zoning would apply specifically to the 11 parcels within the Eastern Dublin plan area without vested development rights. Of the 4,473 unbuilt housing units in the plan area, 3,006 have vested rights while the remaining 1,467 units or 33 percent are unvested.

BIA|Bay Area representatives are reaching out to Dublin staff and elected leaders to discuss alternatives. Members who want to be advised directly on this issue in Dublin should contact East Bay Governmental Affairs Executive Director Lisa Vorderbrueggen at lvorderbrueggen@biabayarea.org or 925-951-6843.
