Wednesday April 15, 2015 - 04:32:00 PM

Don't forget about the Community Benefits Workshop which Berkeley City Councilmember Jesse Arreguín, representing District 4, including Downtown Berkeley,and Berkeley Zoning Adjustments Board members Sophie Hahn and Shoshana O'Keefe are hosting on TODAY, Wednesday, April 15, from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.  

Their announced purpose: to help develop a way to identify significant community benefits from new downtown high-rises. They note that: “This workshop is to consider a general framework for Community Benefits, not specific projects. Councilmember Arreguin and Boardmembers Hahn and O’Keefe vote on projects in a quasi-judicial capacity, and therefore cannot discuss specific projects.”  

The location is the Fireside Room of Live Oak Park Community Center, 1301 Shattuck Avenue at Berryman.
