Public opinion sought about Nishi Gateway

From page A3 | September 02, 2014 |

The city of Davis is seeking public participation in a community-based planning process for the Downtown University Gateway District project. Community members are invited to share their opinions and ideas for the project in an online survey at NishiGateway.org.

The project site encompasses the Nishi property — a wedge-shaped piece of land west of downtown, between Interstate 80 and UC Davis — West Olive Drive and the adjacent UCD land.

The city, the university and Yolo County envision a mixed-use district at the site, with UCD research park development, high-density urban housing and some retail. Walkability, bikeability and support for downtown Davis will be emphasized.

The city also sees the Nishi Gateway as an avenue for job growth. Prakash Pinto, an architect working with the project, said that perhaps 1,800 jobs could be created at the site by locating companies there.

The survey at NishiGateway.org focuses on four elements: community character, economic development, housing and mobility.

Survey-takers are asked to weigh in on the three different conceptual drawings for the site, as well as give their opinions on what modes of transportation should be considered in the site plans. General comments are also solicited.

The survey is designed to be just the start of an ongoing community dialogue.

The survey is open until Sept. 15. According to a Chamber of Commerce news release, those who join the conversation will be entered in a drawing for a $25 Davis Downtown gift card.
