Alameda Point in Focus at Two Events

Later today, community members can discuss the city’s Alameda Point draft environmental impact report, when a public discussion takes place at 7 p.m. (Sept. 25) at City Hall.

For those who can’t make this event, the League of Women Voters invites them to a forum on Alameda Point and the possible impact of the rising sea level connected to global warming at 7 p.m. tomorrow (Sept. 26) at the Mastick Senior Center, 1155 Santa Clara Ave.

The former Naval Air Station — where some plans call for the addition of more than 1,400 homes — could be affected by more water than there is in the Bay today, according to draft report.

Set to discuss the matter on Thursday are Randy Rentschler, a spokesperson for the Metropolitan Transportation Commission, and Jennifer Ott of the the city’s Alameda Point office.

The city says its deadline for public comments on the report is Monday, Oct. 21. Details on how to share comments with city officials can be found online.
