The plans to pave through the middle of the historic Gill Tract Farm are set to be green-lighted this Wednesday at the City of Albany Planning & Zoning meeting. City officials appear to be discouraging public participation, saying there will be NO time for public comment, and starting the meeting one hour earlier than normal, with NO public notice on their website.

When? Wednesday, December 11, 2013 5:45pm Where? 1000 San Pablo Ave, Albany, CA

The proposed development plan would suffocate about a block's worth of fertile soil, with a massive parking lot, strip mall, and high-end housing.

Let the city, UC, and Sprouts "Farmers Market" know we won't stand for misuse of a rare community resource, and then join us for a general assembly (GA) to discuss next steps.

Sprouts Farmers Market wants to pave a crucial piece of our local food security infrastructure. Community members, activists, professors and students are showing up to the Albany planning and zoning meeting on December 11th to give public comment on the Sprouts Farmers Market development plan. Albany city council is expected to pass the development plan. The Gill tract farming community will hold a GA directly after the council meeting to determine next steps to protect this invaluable green space and bountiful resource. Please come to the meeting with your comments and action ideas, check out the video and information below, sign the petition, and pass it along to your friends and family.
