January 18, 2005 Public Hearing:

  1. Marin Avenue Reconfiguration

The City Council is holding a public hearing in order to take public comment and consider what direction to provide staff on the proposed reconfiguration of Marin Avenue. Following the public hearing, Council will consider the adoption of a Negative Declaration for the proposed project. 

 

The proposed project, which would match the existing lane configuration on Marin Avenue in Berkeley between The Circle and The Alameda, would be implemented by the cities of Berkeley and Albany within the existing Marin Avenue publicly-owned right-of-way between San Pablo Avenue and The Alameda.  

 

The project calls for installing new signage and restriping Marin Avenue between Cornell Avenue and The Alameda to: 1) convert Marin Avenue from four lanes (two each direction) to three lanes (one in each direction with a center left-turn lane); 2) add bicycle lanes; and 3) retain existing street parking.

 

After a one-year trial phase to allow monitoring of the reconfigured roadway, Berkeley and Albany  will evaluate project effectiveness.  Depending upon evaluation results and funding availability, the cities may elect to study a second-phase implementation for Marin Avenue to include more permanent infrastructure such as medians and bulbouts. 

 

Pursuant to the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), the cities of Berkeley and Albany prepared an Initial Study and Negative Declaration for the Marin Avenue Reconfiguration Project and circulated a Notice of Intent to Adopt a Negative Declaration.  These documents are available online at: http://www.albanyca.org/news/.  Copies of the documents are also available at the Berkeley Office of Transportation, 1947 Center Street, 3rd Floor; and at the Central and North Branches of the Berkeley Public Library.

 

Public hearings were previously held by: Albany Traffic Commission, September 23, 2004; Berkeley Transportation Commission, October 21, 2004; and Albany City Council, November 15, 2004.
