The Island: Measure B: Yes or no?
Alameda voters are in the midst of making a big decision about the future of Alameda Point, and by extension, our entire Island. (No pressure.) Measure B, which is before absentee ballot holders now and which will hit the polls on February 2, would exempt Alameda Point from development-limiting Measure A, put a land plan in place for the Point and grant a development agreement with the city to whoever ends up developing the Point if this passes.
So should you vote for it or not? We’ve asked proponents and opponents of the measure to answer that question in 500 of their own words or less, and here are their responses. The Yes on B folks won the coin flip, so they’ll go first.
