    Your headline “West Berkeley Residents Fear Possible Measure T Traffic Impacts” is misleading. It should read: 

    “NIMBY Spreads FUD on West Berkeley Plan”.

    The only connection that storage wedge has to BART is that it is next door to a BART station. It’s part of SFMuni’s Cameron Beach Yard (ex-Geneva Carhouse).

    Sorry if didn’t care for my wording, but based on my reading of the article it does deal mostly with concerns raised by West Berkeley residents over Measure T, regardless of their merit.

    I think anytime new, large-scale development is being planned the traffic impacts are a legitimate concern, especially if the developers are not particularly friendly to community interests and appropriate safeguards are not established. My previous dealings with Wareham, one of the developers mentioned in the article, hasn’t inspired me with a lot of confidence, which leads me to believe that there is at least a bit of truth to the concerns voiced by residents in this case.
