The money is a portion of $1.6 million in grant money available through the Metropolitan Transportation Commission to be split among all of the priority development areas in Solano County.
The Priority Development Area Planning Program is the transportation commission’s effort to promote planning for intensified land uses around public transit hubs. Suisun City would have to come up with $18,696 in matching funds if it wants the regional money.
Part of Suisun City’s plans for the money include using it to expand the Downtown Waterfront Specific Plan to cover the undeveloped property located north of Highway 12 and west of Marina Boulevard. Suisun City has been working to develop this land as a mixed-use development with housing and retail uses.
