SPUR Lunchtime Forum: Postmortem: Alameda Point

"Located in the center of the Bay Area, the former Alameda Naval Air Station is the epitome of an "opportunity site" for new development.  Long contentious, the City’s recent plan for "Alameda Point" calls for over 4,000 new homes (25 percent of which are for low- and moderate-income households) as well as new parks, improved ferry services and neighborhood retail. The plan, however, was rejected by voters in February. What were the voters’ concerns? Join Marla Wilson  of Greenbelt Alliance and smart-growth advocate John Knox White for a postmortem on this lost infill opportunity."
