Vallejo Waterfront Coalition (VWC) Settlement Agreement (2006)
Working with the Vallejo Waterfront Coalition, Marti Spearheaded negotiations and a settlement agreement resulting from a California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) lawsuit between the VWC, the City of Vallejo’s Redevelopment Agency and Vallejo’s Waterfront Master Plan Developer. In 2005, the VWC also won The Waterfront Center’s Clearwater Award—recognizing the group for its grassroots effort to better its community and waterfront.
Negotiated improvements included: increased open space and parkland, improved design guidelines, overall higher quality urban design, mixed use zoning and land use changes, and more human scale building heights.
