Going Forward at Alameda Point

One of the hallmark’s of the last eight years of planning at Alameda Point was a decisive unwillingness on the part of the City Council to get actively involved in any of the planning of decision-making. While this isn’t to say that specific council people didn’t have ideas, or try and influence what was happening at the Point, as a body, the Council (or more appropriately the ARRA) never actually did anything. Plans long-term decision making issues came to the board, where as a body, the members remained silent, never accepting or rejecting what was projected.

This was by design.
