Re: “A Disaster Waiting to Happen

Mr. Gammon:
Thanks for this article. You should note that Oakland Police are well aware of the problem with transients, squatters, miners et al. at this site. Yet they lack the will and the ability to get around the bankruptcy court to clear the site of these trespassers. They are the main danger in igniting a fire.

Re: “Lehman, SunCal, and Alameda Point

I am delighted to see East Bay Express coverage of these projects, but what needs to come to light is that the developer's original plan, which preserved the oak groves and the Knoll as a magnificent backdrop and public benefit was scrapped by SunCal at the last minute. East Bay Regional Park District is interested in extending the Leona Preserve Trail through the oaks to the Knoll and beyond. Your readers should be appalled at the thought of losing the heart of Oak Knoll's open space to a few added mini-mansions. To grade-down the Knoll ala West Virginia style strip mining and raze the oak woodlands, would really rip the heart out of the community. This threat is imminent, so do let Council Member Larry Reid know how you feel. Oak Knoll is in his District 7, and is his address.
