The City of Martinez will be hosting its annual Measure D Street Selection Public Workshop with the Franchise and Infrastructure Subcommittee on Wednesday, January 19th, at 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. via Zoom. The workshop is an opportunity for residents to learn about the City’s Pavement Management Program and its recommendations for the next round of street improvement projects and provide input for the Subcommittee and staff.

The workshop held in accordance with the Measure D Street Selection Policy adopted by the Martinez City Council on February 1, 2017, which states:

Commencing in January 2018 and annually thereafter, the City Engineer will hold an annual public workshop with the Franchise and Infrastructure Subcommittee of the City Council regarding the prioritization of pavement projects to be funded by the proceeds of the Tax Measure. Following the public workshop, and on or before the first Council Meeting of February 2018 and each subsequent year thereafter, the City Engineer shall provide the City Council at a regularly scheduled City Council meeting, as a separate item on a publicly noticed City Council agenda, a list of streets with a proposed treatment schedule fully utilizing revenues collected as part of Measure D projected through the end of the fiscal year. At this meeting, the public will have the opportunity to review and comment on the street list. The Council will then approve the list or approve an amended list of streets.

Public participation in the Measure D Street Selection Workshop is highly encouraged.

General Plan Update

November 8, 2021 

We are excited to announce a major revision to the prior General Plan Update elements from 2016 has been prepared and is now available for public review and comment as we embark on a series of three joint public meeting workshops on with the Planning Commission and City Council on December 1st and 15th, 2021, and January 12, 2022, to discuss the updated draft elements in greater detail.

The City will also revise and recirculate the draft Environmental Impact Report (EIR) for the General Plan Update in the spring of 2022 providing further opportunity for public review and engagement on this important project.
