Oakland, Berkeley, And East Bay News, Events, Restaurants, Music, & Arts
FEMA is not chopping anything. They are required by law to take public comments, and they are, on their draft EIS, triggered by the grant applications submitted by UC Berkeley, EBRPD, and City of Oakland to reduce fire risk (which, yes, means removing fuel loads, ie trees). By all means, weigh in via the public process, but read the EIS, not Randy Shaw's alarmist op ed in California Progress Report (which implies that FEMA is trying to sneak something by).
The comments on Glionna's blog are priceless, both from those who hate and those who love the Berkeley Bowl.
