Concept Alternatives Report

In February 2014, the City published a Concept Alternatives Report that frames the public discussion on choices for the future of Cupertino. The report summarizes a major step in the General Plan Amendment process – the presentation and analysis of several Concept Alternatives that have emerged from an extensive community outreach and participation process. Each of the alternatives identifies a possible future scenario for Cupertino. The analysis at the end of the report provides specific detail on the potential benefits and drawbacks of each alternative.

Mobility and Design Concepts Input Summary

In October 2013, the City began the Concept Alternatives phase of the General Plan Amendment process. This part of the process involved extensive community outreach and engagement, including four public workshops/meetings and an interactive online survey. The purpose of this outreach was to solicit community input and ideas on future land use, height, mobility and urban design changes. Participants also contributed their ideas for the future of the Vallco Shopping Mall and larger district.

Because the workshops, meetings and online survey largely covered the same questions and exercises, the City prepared a comprehensive summary of community input received during this part of the General Plan Amendment process. This report summarizes community input from the following:

-  Community-wide Workshop #2, October 23, 2013
-  Neighborhood Meeting, December 5, 2013
-  Chamber of Commerce Meeting, January 29, 2014
-  Neighborhood Block Leaders Meeting, January 29, 2014
-  Online Community Design Survey, Nov 2013 – Jan 2014
