Downtown Plan Committee to Walk District Saturday By RICHARD BRENNEMAN

Friday December 02, 2005

For their second meeting, members of the Downtown Area Plan Advisory Committee (DAPAC)—joined by interested citizens—will take a stroll this Saturday. 

Members of the committee and the public will break up into small groups and walk the streets of the expanded downtown planning area defined in the settlement of the city’s suit against UC Berkeley over the 2020 Long Range Development Plan. 

The planning area extends from Hearst Avenue on the north to Dwight Way on the south, and from Oxford Street on the East to Martin Luther King Jr. Way on the west. 

The day’s events are scheduled to begin with coffee starting at 8:30 a.m. in the Aurora Theatre, 2081 Addison St., with the formal proceedings starting at 9 a.m. with a half-hour welcome and presentation. 

The groups will reunite at the theater at noon for an hour-long public comment and discussion period.
