ALAMEDA POINT: Where do we go from here?
City Councilman Frank Matarrese is asking his dais-mates on Tuesday to consider forming a nonprofit development corporation to manage the redevelopment of the Point with a focus on commercial development there; others are calling for a fresh, public process to determine what Alamedans want to see on the former Naval Air Station.
The Island wants to know what you think. What would you like to see out there? Housing, parks, light industry? What are key elements of any plan to develop the base? What’s doable, and what’s pie-in-the-sky? Should Alameda try to do this on its own, or should city leaders seek out another developer to manage redevelopment of the base? Or should we do something else entirely?
Drop us a line in the comments section to let us know what you think sometime over the next few days. We’ll post a story next week.
