City Council meeting coming to South Hayward

September 11, 2018

Matt Jimenez Center

The City’s Tennyson Corridor Strategic Initiative will be in focus during a special Hayward City Council meeting to be held at Matt Jimenez Community Center, 28200 Ruus Road, at 7 p.m. on Sept. 11.

As the Council returns from its summer recess, it will hear a presentation and progress report on the first year of the initiative’s two-year action plan—the goals of which are creating a community vision for the Tennyson Corridor, increasing pedestrian and bicycle safety, improving community appearance, fostering a cohesive sense of place and enhancing community resiliency.

During the meeting, the Council also will receive updates on two related strategic initiatives, Complete Streets and Complete Communities, with goals that include improved safety for all modes of travel citywide, enhanced quality of life for residents and business owners in all neighborhoods, and provision of a mix of housing stock that meets the needs of residents of all income levels.

The Tennyson Corridor Strategic Initiative is concentrating City attention on a three-miles stretch of neighborhoods running along either side of Tennyson Boulevard between Mission and Industrial boulevards.  A highlight has been a City partnership with the Chabot College Student Initiative Center.  Participating students conducted interviews with more than 200 community members and stakeholders.  The students translated the interviews into an art exhibit—and the data they collected is helping to shape a new Tennyson Thrives Vision Plan for the Corridor.
