Huffman and Elkind write: “So why is suburban sprawl the norm instead of housing close to shops, cafes and transit? The primary roadblock to this development is local land-use policies.”
While it’s easy to say, memorable, and shocking, the West End of Alameda is not losing its bus service. But unfortunately, this is becoming the framing for AC Transit’s reduction/restructuring plan.
While in Alameda, our 25 mph roads continue to be engineered to the same standard (or even wider) than CalTrans requires for 65 mph freeways, the dutch have started going the other way with amazing results.
Proposed I-880 Improvements Between 23rd Avenue and 29th Avenue, to be completed in 2015, promises to be pretty disruptive to drivers traveling North on I-88o.
Not an article can be written or cited about SunCal these days without what is becoming an almost ubiquitous comment posting from alamedapointinfo.org.

If you drive by city hall today, the flags will be at half mast for May Mew in honor of her service to the city. She passed away on August 12th at the age of 94.
news has broken that the Pacific Justice Institute, the defenders of “religious freedom” (often known as insisting that their version of religion be taught to others, see: Intelligent Design), has filed a lawsuit against AUSD. This is being done in conjunction with Alameda parents who don’t want their children to be taught to be compassionate to people who are gay (not teaching that kids should be consider being gay, just that families exist who have gay members and you shouldn’t bully them).
Please take a minute to sign the following petition in support of Boardmembers Tam, Jensen and Mooney. A show of support by their community will go a long way towards making this all go away, or at the very least, easier for these volunteers who have signed up to work on the difficult issues facing our schools.
Growing strife between the Alameda Soccer Club and Jack London Youth Soccer could very easily be the beginnings of ASC breaking away from JLYSL in the hopes that its own size will be enough to create a dynamic league and local field use will become more readily available.
