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.

Recent discussions on Lauren Do’s blog (tip to blogger Roberts, it’s “Doe” on “Doo”) have led to outlandish claims calling SunCal “crooks” and accusing them of “Land Grabs,” accusations that yours truly is breaking the Brown Act (open government laws) by having a blog that I sometimes express an opinion on, and the claims and accusations go on and on.
