SAVE THE DATE: Berkeley Project Day 2013: Oct. 26

Hi CalJulia Neighbors!

Now that autumn is upon us, it’s time for another Berkeley Project Day!

Join neighbors, the City of Berkeley and Cal student volunteers for a neighborhood Fall sprucing up!

Saturday, October 26th
10 AM to 4 PM
Meet at 1508 Julia Street for morning refreshments.

Whether you join us for an hour or the whole day, we’d love to see as many neighbors out as possible!

We plan to pick up trash, sweep out the storm drains in preparation for the winter rains, and weed and plant sidewalk strips!

If you have any other project ideas or if you’d like some Cal students to work on your sidewalk strip, please let me know and we’ll get it done!!

If your strip has yet to be planted with daffodil bulbs, it would be great to multiply our display of color that carpets the neighborhood each early spring!

Looking forward to seeing many of your on October 26th!

Sacramento Street Business District Improvements Follow Up

Hi Neighbors!

Today, Tania and I (Sofia) had the pleasure of meeting with several staff members from the City to follow up on the Sacramento Street Business District improvements discussion that was started at our April meeting.

Our main takeaway is that there will be a community meeting in September to bring together all the Sacramento Street stakeholders (including neighbors!). This will be lead by Elizabeth Garcia, from the Economic Development office at the City. It will be an opportunity for all stakeholders to express their dreams for and frustrations with Sacramento Street, and from there for Elizabeth to gather the appropriate resources to address those dreams and frustrations.

A brief summary of today’s meeting is below.
