About the Concord Community Reuse ProjectNew uses for the Concord Naval Weapons Station will provide many positive, long-lasting benefits for the people of Concord. After the base was closed in 2005, residents, stakeholders and the City came together over several years to decide how the property should be developed. After seven years of meetings and public workshops, and with the oversight of a 21-member advisory committee, the Concord Community Reuse Project Area Plan was adopted in 2012.
The overarching project goals agreed upon by the community are:
- Identity as a World Class Project
- A Balanced Approach to Conservation and Development
- Economically Viable and Sustainable Development
- High Quality of Life for all Residents of Concord
Project UpdateA new Master Developer selection process began on April 16, 2021 with the release of the Request for Qualifications. Statements of Qualifications are due back to the City by June 18, 2021 and City Council interviews are expected to take place in August 2021.
The City has been working with the Navy to prepare for the transfer of ownership of the CNWS land to the City. The new Master Developer and the City will work together to negotiate the terms of this transfer. The City expects to begin working with the new Master Developer to prepare a Specific Plan and Environmental Impact Report (EIR) for the Project in early 2022. The Specific Plan and EIR will be the subject of public workshops and reviewed by the Planning Commission and City Council prior to Council adoption.
