While some communities around San Francisco Bay are looking beyond a landscape of pavement to better the natural environment, members of Alameda’s city staff have decided to shelve a plan for creating wetlands at Alameda Point. Why?
As a member of Harbor Bay Neighbors who are in opposition to moving the Harbor Bay Club from its the location its operated from for more than 35 years in order to build homes or a hotel, I frequently hear misconceptions, and untruths that have been accepted as fact.
The plan for a so-called “De-Pave Park” on the western side of the Seaplane Lagoon would be something to cheer about if the park had any chance of ever being created. The concept behind the park is to remove the concrete tarmac and shoreline boulders, allowing for a natural wetland shoreline.
