The Island: Alameda council holds off on new Point direction, charter changes; OKs budget


City staff will begin work on a list of options for redevelopment Alameda Point to present to the City Council in the fall.

The council asked staff to get cracking on the list at the tail end of an action-packed, seven-hour meeting Tuesday night, the council’s last schedule meeting until September. The request came in lieu of a proposal by Councilman Frank Matarrese that would have focused the city on exploring the formation of a nonprofit corporation to handle base development and on job creation instead of housing.
