Could developers apply to build multi-family anywhere on the island if Article 26 is repealed?

A:

If Article 26 is repealed, the City Council will need to decide where the higher density multiple residential development should be allowed within Alameda. This is a public process requiring public hearings, and any changes to the Zoning Ordinance density standards and height limits by the City Council must be consistent with the General Plan. The General Plan identifies Alameda Point, Northern Waterfront, Park Street Commercial District, and Webster Street Commercial District as appropriate locations for transit oriented, multi-family, mixed-use development.
