Petaluma council members Monday night will consider two significant development proposals that could drastically change the face of downtown and the Petaluma River area.
The first is an economic assessment conducted for the proposed Riverfront mixed-use project at 500 Hopper St., between Highway 101 and the Petaluma River.
The other is a master planning document for the area surrounding the planned SMART rail station on East Washington and Lakeville streets.
The city-mandated fiscal and economic impact analysis analyzes the 39-acre project's impacts on the local economy, employment and existing businesses.
Riverfront, a proposal by Basin Street Properties, includes 273 residential units, 90,000 square feet of commercial space, a 120-room hotel and seven acres of open space on vacant land between the river and the highway.
