Rin Kelly has done it. Written the perfect Rorshach test for Alameda Point. And I don’t mean that in a bad way. Apparently it doesn’t matter what her article says (and says well and fairly), you can see that it has proved you right all along. Which either says something about the readers or about the writing…and I’m going with readers on this one.
While Alameda will lose service of much of its north side, and a direct connection to Fruitvale BART for the far East End, many of the proposed changes offers significant enhancements to existing services.
I had a chance to talk with KPFA’s Brian Edwards-Tiekert today about the Oakland Airport ocnnector. Since I’ve been a little slow on the blogging at SD&R, I figured I’d post the show.
The Alameda County Director of PUblic Works, Daniel Woldesenbet, has sent a letter to all County Supervisors identifying the impacts of the Governators proposed shift of local gas taxes. Right at the top of page 2? “Estuary Bridges”
Someone has hired a lawyer to threaten the City Council with a lawsuit over Alameda Point. They should hire someone to read things for them first.
Word is coming down from the County that the state’s proposal to raid local gas taxes could result in disastrous consequences for the City of Alameda.
SunCal has submitted a Sports Complex Master Plan (see below) which lays out two scenarios for what the sports complex is being proposed to look like. There are some geotechnical issues that make building a pool difficult, and there for, it’s “potential.”
Over the weekend, I opened the front door and stepped onto the porch to find that the flyer-fairy had left a “gift” on my doorstep. The first in what one might imagine will be three or four flyers from Revitalize Alameda Point. In chatting with a couple of people it came to my attention that not all neighborhoods got them, and so I’m posting it for anyone to see. Enjoy!
A month and a half ago, I wrote about the Alameda Sun’s ridiculous “news” article and duplicative front page editorial regarding the signature gatherers collecting ballot signatures for the SunCal initiative. While taking photos of one of the gatherers, an Alameda Sun reporter was yelled at and eventually had his hand (holding the camera) pushed in a stupid (on the signature gatherers part) attempt to block a photo from being taken.
