Ideas for Hayward Mayoral Candidates City Council Candidates
Sherman Lewis, with help from many civic activists around town, wrote this report, "Ideas for Hayward," to discuss most of the issues facing Hayward. It has detailed background information on all of the questions asked of the candidates. The PDF (linked below) allows you to click on an item in the table of contents to access the topics that most concern you. The mayoral candidates commented on the "Ideas for Hayward" report, and their comments are shown below. Sherman Lewis and several of his advisors discussed the issues for an hour or more with each candidate January 24, 2014, at Frank Goulart's historic Linekin building. All the city council candidates were sent "Ideas for Hayward." They were also sent a long questionnaire based on the report. Finally they were sent a follow-up with the five most important questions. Their responses are shown in the PDF below.

238 Widening project (old)

Location: Hayward, California, 94541 From Union City to Castro Valley and Highway 580.

Background: From 1961 to 2002, Caltrans tried to build a freeway through the hills and homes of Hayward - five miles through about 300 dwellings and across the face of the hills. In the end, this devastating project was stopped by the courts. The judges ruled that Caltrans could not take money voters approved in 1986 for a project along Foothill and Mission Boulevards and spend it on a different project in a different alignment. In the spring of 2002, interested parties came close to an agreement on an alternative project, and in November 2002 Hayward voters amended the city's General Plan to allow the city to pursue the new project.

The new alternative is a compromise calling for an underpass from Jackson to Foothill and intersection widenings. The Hayward Area Planning Association supports this part of the compromise, but is opposing other parts of the plan. HAPA opposes widening Foothill downtown to ten lanes and destroying all the businesses on the east side. HAPA opposes widening Mission to eight lanes, destroying most of the businesses on the east side.

HAPA supports widening Mission to six lanes plus bicycle lanes, adjusting the on-ramps to I580 and I 238, and building a connector from I580 westbound to Foothill southbound.
