Second Alameda Point community meeting is tonight
A group of local residents is hosting the second in a series of meetings on the future of Alameda Point from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. today at Auctions By the Bay Theater, 2700 Saratoga Street. The meeting is free and open to the public.
The topic of tonight’s meeting is “Other Base Reuse Developments, Learning From the Experience of Others.” Speakers will include Michael Fassler, associate director of real estate for the Presidio Land Trust; and Doug Yount, director of the Strategic Development Center, City of Marina, which oversees the development at the former Fort Ord. The event will also include a presentation on the reuse development of the former Marine Corps Air Station El Toro in the city of Irvine.
An earlier meeting was held August 11 at the Alameda Naval Air Museum, and the final meeting of the series, which will be held on a date to be announced, will be a workshop where organizers will gather public input and create recommendations for moving forward on development at Alameda Point to the city.
So far, organizers said that the consensus among participants in the meeting reflects a desire to redevelop the base with a focus on adaptive reuse of what’s already there.
