BUSD housing at former Oxford Elementary
Next meeting is March 8
BUSD's 7-11 committee is tasked with advising how the district will use or dispose of the Oxford Elementary School site at 1130 Oxford, a 54,000 sf parcel at the edge of the Berkeley Hills. BUSD has the chance to adopt a plan that develops this property into workforce housing and/or some combination of missing middle housing and low income housing.
Tips for giving public comment or writing letters
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 neighbors in their neighborhood is a bad thing and want to be able to continue to park their cars 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.
