A town hall meeting today on the San Leandro Marina is expected to be an encore presentation of the last one held in May.
City officials are looking to piggyback on the momentum from the previous town hall meeting, at which more than 150 people showed up to discuss the future of the marina yacht harbor and the possibility of development along the shoreline.
From my observations, the last town hall meeting was pretty successful in getting a variety of input — and not just comments from those closest to the shoreline — on the whole marina issue. But it still didn’t draw as many people from neighborhoods other than the area surrounding the marina.
It will be interesting to see who attends and what gets discussed at 7 p.m. at the Marina Community Center, 15301 Wicks Blvd. — and whether more ideas come out of it.
In the meantime, take a look at what ideas were discussed at the last town hall meeting.
