The city of Berkeley is hosting five public meetings this month to collect public input on how to spend more than $50 million in Measure T1 money. They kick off tonight, Oct. 1.
Part of Adeline Street has been completely repaved and improvements are planned on University Avenue at the marina. Live Oak Park’s community center is being rebuilt. It’s all part of T1 bond measure work underway now.
Hand sanitizers now abound in senior residences. Friends and family members who are sick are being asked to stay away and to communicate through Skype or other electronic means.
The Gay Day celebration was just one of a number of events in Berkeley to celebrate Pride Month.
The city of Berkeley expects to spend more than $20 million in the next year on a range of ambitious infrastructure projects funded by Measure T1, a $100 million bond that won landslide support from voters in 2016.
Renovations, which includes a major seismic retrofit, are expected to take 12-18 months.
Now that the Ninth Street shelter has closed, homeless people are alternating between two properties. Seniors at the North Berkeley Senior Center are adapting to the situation.
Berkeley’s extended emergency shelter will move to the North Berkeley Senior Center for two weeks, then the Frances Albrier Community Center for the next two.
The Ninth Street shelter is set to close at the end of August, but the city has money to open it up elsewhere.
