I am very pleased at our Zoning Boards decision to add mixed housing units to downtown. Andy Katz has been a vocal advocate for Close Affordable and Livable (CAL) Housing, fighting to improve the lives of students and fighting to improve our beautiful downtown.
The newly approved project on the corner of University and Shattuck is yet another great addition to rejuvenating our downtown. Adding more pedestrians and more housing is the right thing to do.
We should continue to support such projects, especially when they give our community members options for low and very low income, and disabled residents.
With projects like this we really are creating an inclusive and vibrant Berkeley.
