Study Summary and Goals

The Nasa Area Study provides analysis and recommendations for land use and infrastructure investments that create a more walkable, connected community and develops a framework for ongoing development. Specifically, the study recommends:

  • Redesigning the right-of-way for key streets in the study area, particularly on Upper Bay Road, to incorporate safe and comfortable pedestrian and bicyclist infrastructure.
  • Fostering a sense of place through the design and placement of distinctive public art, community gateways, wayfinding and other signage.
  • Adding a mixed-use category to the city’s zoning regulations that will increase residential and commercial land uses and encourage greater density in the community.
