The City of Dublin and Avalon Bay jointly announce the upcoming dedication of the new Pete Snyder Plaza located at the Dublin/Pleasanton BART Station (east). The event will be held on Monday, March 31 at 9:00 a.m. The public is invited to attend the dedication.
Former Mayor Pete Snyder served as the first Mayor of the City of Dublin from 1982-86 and again from 1990-94. Snyder played an integral role in getting BART to Dublin.
Snyder worked with BART, the City, and investment firms to create a public-private partnership that enabled BART to pay for the new station. After serving as Mayor of Dublin, Snyder served as a member on the BART Board of Directors from 1996-2004.
The new Pete Snyder plaza will be a welcoming and gathering area for the community to enjoy. The plaza is part of the open space element around Avalon Bay, and includes a pedestrian connection to the nearby Campbell Green and northern properties.
