East Bay Express: Alameda's Council, Up for Grabs, October 10, 2012


Alameda Point is still a potential gold mine. Although the city's past attempts to redevelop the former Naval Air Station have failed, the 1,500 acres on the northwest side of Alameda not only could transform the island city, but also the entire East Bay with an influx of jobs and new housing and business developments that would feature some of most stunning views in the region. What the City of Alameda ultimately does with Alameda Point will have major ramifications for the city, but how it moves forward with plans to develop it will rest in the hands of new councilmembers elected this fall.
