My Word: Alameda Point area's process going nowhere Opinion by Richard Bangert Alameda Times-Star (CA) April 5, 2012You may have heard of the meetings and public workshops to discuss community priorities for Alameda Point's future. The process is called "Going Forward," as opposed to going backward.
In one area -- the 220-acre, sprawling open space called the Northwest Territories -- city hall is stuck in what I call the "Going Nowhere Process." The East Bay Regional Park District's proposal for establishing a landmark open space park system, which includes moving the Veterans Affairs Department office to the Northwest Territories, is the only viable plan for this area in the 19 years since the base closure was announced. The city, aided by advocates for organized sports, could undermine the project.
The monkey wrench in this collaborative effort among the Veterans Affairs Department, Navy, U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, East Bay Regional Park District and the city, with the support of the Audubon Society, is the demand that the park district pay for the land that the district is volunteering to take over. The city and sports advocates want the undisclosed amount to go toward building a nearby sports complex.
