No housing in People's Park!

Date:
Tuesday, June 28, 2016
Time:
5:30 PM - 7:00 PM
Event Type:
Meeting
Organizer/Author:
Defend People's Park
Location Details:
Berkeley city council chambers
2134 MLK Way

As part of the new economic development plan for Telegraph Avenue, aka the "Telegraph Public Realm Plan", the economic development manager for the city of Berkeley (Michael Caplan) is recommending that Berkeley city council support new student housing in People's Park.

Show up to the city council special session at 5:30PM (this is not the regular meeting which starts at 7PM) and speak during the public comment period. Show your support for keeping People's Park as an open space.

2019 will be the 50th anniversary of People's Park. In 2019, the public can demand that People's Park be turned into a California State Park, as to be preserved in perpetuity. People's Park could also be placed on the national historical register. Developers and UC Berkeley are well aware that there is mass support for People's Park's preservation, but they ignore public sentiment by continuing to place People's Park under threat of development.
