  • Redesigning the Street Right-of-Way to Improve Mobility, Safety and Public Spaces:  A discussion of how can the Adeline Corridor plan improve the way people move around and through the project area. The workshop will include street and sidewalk concepts based on community input. Saturday March 17, 12pm to 1:30pm. 

The Adeline Corridor Plan process is a comprehensive effort to incorporate community priorities into a Plan which will guide the future development of the area.

The Plan will include goals, policies and implementation actions for recommended public improvements, as well as zoning regulations, which govern the development of private property. The current phase will confirm community priorities for land use, transportation safety and mobility opportunities, preserving the area's rich history, and promoting affordable housing, development of businesses and jobs, arts and culture, and open space.

These priorities will be the basis for the next phase of the process to prepare a draft plan and to conduct the required environmental analysis of the plan in summer and fall of 2018, culminating in plan adoption in early 2019.  Adoption of the final plan will better position the City to receive public funding for proposed improvements.

For questions about the project, visit the City's Adeline Corridor website or contact Alisa Shen, Principal Planner at ashen@cityofberkeley.info or 510.981.7409.
