Tell the developers in Albany/Berkeley to adhere to the Voices to Vision plan!  

Lawrence Berkeley National Lab is in the planning stages for building a second campus. There were many proposals that have been narrowed down to six locations: 

  • Alameda - Naval Air Station
  • Albany / Berkeley - Golden Gate Fields
  • Berkeley - Aquatic Park West
  • Emeryville / Berkeley
  • Oakland - Brooklyn Basin
  • Richmond - UC Field Station
The Bay Chapter has concerns about the Golden Gate Fields location in Albany/Berkeley. The extensive Voices to Vision process culminated in a plan requiring 75% open space with 25% development when Golden Gate Fields is redeveloped. 

We want to make sure that this development adheres to the original Voices to Vision plan! 

Here Is What You Can Do:  

Please come to the meeting and tell the developers to adhere to the original plan -- 75/25, set forth through the Voices to Vision process! 

WHAT: A meeting to discuss the future of the Albany shoreline, called Voices to Vision.
