Berkeley Downtown Plan goes to City Council for approval

March 6, 2012 - 7:00pm to 9:00pm

from our friends at Livable Berkeley
The City Council is getting ready to consider adoption of the Downtown Area Plan next Tuesday, March 6. The Downtown Plan focuses on more housing within walking distance of transit, higher education, jobs, services, and entertainment. Great things are already underway: new programs are making Downtown Berkeley more welcoming, and the UC Art Museum is coming to our thriving Arts District. All of this makes our Downtown - the heart of our city - a more desirable place to live, work, and play.
