UC to encroach on public right of way, install archway on Telegraph Avenue
Berkeley News
In this first semester as new UC Berkeley president, Nicholas Dirks has expressed intentions to increase the UC's influence over Telegraph Avenue by encroaching on the public right of way to install a piece of UC Berkeley property - an illuminated archway. The archway is designed by university staff and the Berkeley Design Advocates, a local design firm who supports the sale of the Berkeley Post Office by UC regent Richard Blum. The city of Berkeley's department of public works made minimal effort to make the public aware of the proposed encroachment, announcing a short 2 week notice for comment - which is now closed - on a small, indistinct piece of paper on a lightpole.
