Alameda Sun: Point Situation Develops, September 22, 2011


It's been a while since Alameda residents last heard an update about the state of Alameda Point. The Alameda Sun contacted officials with the city, the Alameda Point Collaborative (APC), and the PM Realty Group, which manages leases at the base, to see what's new at the base.

Deputy City Manager Jennifer Ott said that the city "is primarily focusing its efforts" on five major goals.

The city continues to work hard on attracting Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory's second campus to the Point. In July, the city submitted its proposal for the second lab campus to the lab's selection committee. In early September, the city gave the committee a tour of the former naval air station. The committee will respond some time this month with suggestions on how Alameda can improve its case for getting the lab. The committee will make its final choice for where the lab will go in November.
