East Side San Carlos Innovation District Plan

The City of San Carlos created an “Eastside Planning Initiative” that prepared a plan to address the changes in development patterns due to the influx of jobs in the industrial/commercial areas of the City. The goal of the plan was to maximize the City’s ability to shape infrastructure, urban design, transportation circulation management and mobility, service provision, open space, present and future land used, economic development, community benefits, and guide zoning changes. BKF provided a high-level review of existing public infrastructure, including utilities, streets, and flooding conditions. BKF collaborated with the project team and the City of San Carlos to develop infrastructure goals for the Vision Plan, including the potential for implementation of green infrastructure in public streets, an extension of recycled water service to the plan area, and the improvement of an existing creek within the plan area.
