Re: “Berkeley Greenlights BART Housing in Principle, But the Devil Is In the Details.

"community-driven, nonprofit development,"

Funded exactly how? God knows students and "activists" pay almost no taxes on the kind of scale needed to fund the boondoggles and "bread and circuses" "the community" wants and the politicians haven't the will to make corporation pay their fair share.

I know! let's just print money!

Someone has to say it: 100% of zero is still zero & Friends of Adeline is a NIMBY cabal. Anyone believing they're pushing affordable housing is naive at best.

Lee-Egan of North Berkeley Now said she's lived in the neighborhood near the BART station about six years and "always felt the surface parking lot was underutilized."

Yep. I guess that's why all the 4 hour parking signs on the adjacent streets, right?

And be sure to build it high like they do in Emeryville.

Re: “Berkeley Greenlights BART Housing in Principle, But the Devil Is In the Details.

The question of affordable housing seems very straightforward to solve:
1) Fund as much as possible with the remaining Measure O funds
2) Pass as big a bond as possible in November 2020 to fund even more
3) Build market rate housing to fund even more

Re: “The Coming National Water-Quality Crisis

For clarification: I do not believe the Pleasanton Garbage Service operations are in any way connected to the PFAS in Pleasanton’s groundwater. The material that moves through their transfer station and Material Recovery Facility (MRF) near Well 8 is moved out quickly- often within hours- to the landfill and compost facility. I appreciate the author’s coverage of this extremely important topic, but I do want to be certain that my concerns are clarified.
