Tentative Agenda

  1. Call to Order and Safety Announcement
  2. Approval of Draft Minutes August 8, 2017 Engineering Criteria Review Board (ECRB) Meeting
  3. Public Announcements
  4. Latitude Project (Pre-Application)

    The Engineering Criteria Review Board (ECRB) will hold its third review of a proposal by Laconia Development, LLC, for a mixed-use development on an approximately 13-acre site in the City of Richmond, Contra Costa County. The site is bounded by Brickyard Cove Road to the south, the Richmond Yacht Club to the west, and Dornan Drive and Miller-Knox Regional Shoreline Park to the east.

    The project would include residential and public access development within and outside of BCDC’s jurisdiction, including an approximately 5.5 acres of public waterfront park along approximately 1,200 feet of shoreline. The public waterfront park component, which involves restoring an existing 555-foot-long by 90-foot-wide, approximately 50,000-square-foot wharf built in the early 1900s, was originally briefed to the Board on June 7, 2016.

    Subsequently, the engineering criteria for the wharf restoration were reviewed by the Board on May 24, 2017 and August 8, 2017, at which time the Board agreed that the project should move forward and requested that the project proponent provide the Board with written responses to comments raised at the August 8, 2017 meeting. At this meeting, the Board will assess and provide advice on the safety provisions of the wharf to be repurposed for public access.  For further information, please contact Rafael Montes at 415/352-3670 or rafael.montes@bcdc.ca.gov.

  5. Encinal Terminals Project  (Pre-Application)
    The Engineering Criteria Review Board (ECRB) will hold its first review of a proposal by North Waterfront Cove LLC to construct the Encinal Terminals project – a mixed-use development on an approximately 23-acre, former industrial site in the city of Alameda, Alameda County.  The site is bounded by the Oakland-Alameda Estuary to the north, Alaska Basin inlet to the west, Fortman Marina to the east, and the Del Monte Building warehouse to the south. The project proposal includes townhouses, multi-family residential structures, and two wharf structures repurposed for public access. The two concrete wharves that are the subject to this review were built in 1924 and 1960, covering an area of 97,500 and 63,000 square feet, respectively. At this meeting, the Board will assess and provide advice on the engineering safety provisions of the wharves to be repurposed for public access use.   For further information, please contact Rafael Montes at 415/352-3670 or rafael.montes@bcdc.ca.gov.
