Public Hearings     |     City Council Agendas & Summaries


Public Hearings for May 16, 2000 include:

BERKELEY REDEVELOPMENT AGENCY
PUBLIC HEARING NOTICE

AMENDMENT TO FIVE-YEAR IMPLEMENTATION PLAN FOR
THE WEST BERKELEY REDEVELOPMENT PROJECT

DATE:   TUESDAY, MAY 16, 2000

PLACE: CITY COUNCIL CHAMBERS, 2134 MARTIN LUTHER KING JR. WAY 

TIME:    Council meetings commence at 7:00 P.M.

Recommendation:   The Berkeley Redevelopment Agency Board will conduct a public hearing on a proposed amendment to Five-Year Implementation Plan Area for the years 2000 through 2004 for the West Berkeley Redevelopment Project.  State law requires that redevelopment agencies adopt implementation plans every five years for each redevelopment project.  On December 7, 1999, the Berkeley Redevelopment Agency adopted an implementation plan for the West Berkeley Redevelopment Project for the years 2000 through 2004.   That implementation plan proposed the following projects for the West Berkeley Redevelopment Project: (1) improvements to Berkeley’s Rail Stop at the foot of University Avenue; (2) a possible central parking facility for the Fourth Street retail district; (3) streetscape improvements, including a pedestrian/bike connection to Aquatic Park and the I-80 bridge; (4) improvements to the Gilman/I-80 Interchange; and (5) funding of low and moderate-income housing. 

The Agency now proposes to amend the Five-Year Implementation Plan for the West Berkeley Redevelopment Project Area to include the following project:

Construction of the I-80 Pedestrian/Bicycle Overcrossing

The Agency proposes to provide funding for the construction of the Overcrossing.   Funding for the Overcrossing will be provided in part by reducing the $3,000,000 allocated in the Agency's Five-Year Implementation Plan for a possible central parking facility to serve the Fourth Street retail district.  The Overcrossing will provide pedestrian, wheelchair and bicycle access over

I-80 from the north side of Aquatic Park to the Marina, the planned Bay Trail and the planned State Shoreline Park. The City Attorney has determined that Agency funding can be provided for the Overcrossing if the Agency and the Agency Board make findings that the Overcrossing benefits the Project Area.   For more information contact Wendy Cosin, Planning and Development Department, 705-8104.


Anyone wishing to speak at the public hearing may receive a speaker card from the Agency Clerk at the start of the Council meeting up until the closure of the public hearing. 

Written comments should be mailed or delivered directly to the Agency Clerk, 1900 Addison Street, Berkeley, CA 94704, in order to ensure delivery to all Agency members and inclusion in the agenda packet.  Comments received not later than 12:00 noon, Monday, May 8, 2000, will be included in Agency agenda packets.  Comments received thereafter will be submitted to the Agency as supplemental communications prior to the meeting.   For further information, call Sherry M. Kelly, Agency Clerk, 644-6480.  TDD: (510) 644-6915.
