As part of the Union City General Plan Update, we facilitated a workshop to gather input from residents on their preferences for various alternatives for new development. The alternatives Puzzle Exercise will gather input from participants on their land use preferences for each focus area. The exercise will consist of a Focus Area alternatives Workbook, worksheets for gathering individual focus area preferences, and a puzzle board for gathering group input on a preferred alternative.

The group input board will be a citywide General Plan Diagram with the focus areas blank. Each table will have puzzle pieces for each Focus Area that reflects the alternatives. There will also be blank puzzle pieces that participants can fill in using markers. The puzzle pieces will be printed on cardstock and cut to size. Each piece will include images depicting the types of development expected based on the land use designations.
