  • Further steps toward paradise instead of a parking lot at North Berkeley BART. Both City of Berkeley and BART have approved the zoning but keep an eye on this space to see what YOU can do

  • Workforce housing at the Berkeley Adult School (BAS) is moving along, a meeting may come up where it needs community support

Development at North Berkeley BART is not a done deal. We need to speak up not only to make sure it houses lots of people, but we need to speak up to make sure it happens at all!

There's a small but loud group who are scared of change. They think more people in their neighborhood is a bad thing and want to be able to continue to park for free wherever they want. These securely housed people are highly motivated to maintain the status quo and have the luxury to go to every meeting. We need to show up too.
