The West Berkeley Plan (1993)

This plan aims at reinforcing the dynamic mix of industrial, office, arts and crafts, residential, retail and institutional activities in this vital district of the city. The document is the result of a unique planning process initiated by an informal committee sponsored by the Planning Commission, consisting of artists, laborers, residents, environmentalists, manufacturers, retailers, church groups, and community service organizations. This plan is also available for purchase at the Planning and Development Department at 2120 Milvia Street for $10.
