The Planet received this email this morning, forwarded by Richmond Councilmember Tom Butt:
I received a call this morning from Paul Alivasatos, Director of the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, informing me that they have decided to make the Richmond Field Station and the City of Richmond the home for their second campus.Further details will be available later today.
I would like to thank the Richmond City Council for their enthusiastic support for this important economic development project, the many City of Richmond staff members who worked to provide technical support in the decision-making process, and the Richmond community for providing the warm welcome mat that was undoubtedly a major factor in their decision.
I will provide more details as they become available. In the meantime, please enjoy this great bit of news and let's look forward to continued success.
[Richmond] City Manager
