ADELINE CORRIDOR WORKSHOP: EXPLORING & REFINING OPTIONS
Help create a community vision

Berkeley, California (Tuesday, May 17, 2016) - Come review and discuss ways to achieve the community’s vision and goals for the Adeline Corridor at a workshop this Saturday.   

Help confirm the goals articulated by the community during the first phase of the planning process (Visioning and Existing Conditions Analysis), and begin to review different options to achieve these goals. The community has identified goals that focus on affordable housing, transportation, economic opportunities, community character and open space. The vision behind these goals relates to opportunities which open up by rethinking how we use our streets and publicly-owned parcels.  

Your community feedback on these proposals will form the building blocks to create a long-range vision and plan for the corridor.  Your engagement in this and subsequent workshops is very important, particularly as we begin to move toward more specific proposals.  Starting with May 21st, the subsequent workshops build on each other.  

Sat., May 21: Workshop #2 - Exploring and Refining Options: Overarching Community Framework and Emerging Concepts 

Saturday, May 21, 2016
10am – 1:30pm (*Doors open at 9:30am for registration)
South Berkeley Senior Center
2939 Ellis Street (at Ashby Ave.) 

At this workshop, community members will affirm the Community Vision Framework articulated in the first phase of community engagement, as well as discuss various options (and their tradeoffs) to use public space (e.g. the street and publicly owned parcels) to further community goals.  

Sat. July 16:  Workshop #3 - Exploring and Refining Options: Regulations, Policies and Programs

Building upon the May workshop, community members will focus on discussing various options to use regulations, incentives, policies and programs that could support community goals for publicly-owned parcels and right-of-way and privately owned parcels.    

Sat. Nov. 19:  Workshop #4 – Moving Forward: Identifying Community Priorities for Implementation*

Community feedback from the May and July workshops will result in a “preferred” set of options and recommendations which will be presented at Workshop #4.  At this workshop, community members will be asked to identify priorities within the preferred recommendations. The preferred recommendations will become the basis for the Draft Adeline Corridor Plan and subsequent required environmental analysis. 

*Workshop location and time TBA.  

The effort to create a community vision for the Adeline Corridor has been led by the City of Berkeley’s Planning Department staff, who have guided an extensive outreach effort to mobilize community members. City staff have organized dozens of meetings, walking/bike tours, and events to increase knowledge and provide tools for community members to engage and shape a consensus vision.  

To support this vision, the goal is to create a framework that guides the development of public property, including streets and the right of way, as well as private property. 

More information about upcoming community meetings and events can be found on the project website: www.cityofberkeley.info/adelinecorridor.
