The City Planning Dept decided Mallard Pointe doesn’t require an environmental review. What could possibly go wrong?
Even the incomplete story poles show the devastating impact the development would have on our city.
The Impacts of the Mallard Pointe Project
The Mallard Pointe Project would pose a threat to the quality of life and the environment for the inhabitants of Belvedere. Learn more about the impacts of the largest proposed residential demolition and redevelopment project in the City’s history.
The Mallard Pointe project is one of the largest, if not the largest, residential demolition and construction projects in the history of Belvedere. If allowed to proceed, it would have a lasting and indelible impact on our community.
Intelligent and Responsible Growth for the City of Belvedere
Belvedere Residents for Intelligent Growth (BRIG) is a volunteer group of over 600 members and growing. We feel strongly about intelligent and responsible growth as well as community involvement in the planning process. We are all for progress…but progress that makes sense in adding housing. The environment, public safety, and the needs and concerns of all must be considered.
We strongly believe that keeping all residents informed with timely and accurate information is the best way for citizens to actively and constructively engage in a major project like Mallard Pointe.
What is the Mallard Pointe Project?
Mallard Pointe is a proposed residential development project that would, if approved, demolish current housing units located at #1–22 Mallard Road and construct 40 new housing units. Of these 40 units, only 4 would be “legally affordable.”
How will this project impact existing residents of Mallard Road?
The demolition of the existing 22 duplex units would displace all current renters, leaving many seniors, single adults, and young families without a place to live. The overall project would adversely impact the environment, public safety, traffic, parking, noise, light, views, the Belvedere Lagoon, and our Community Park.
