City Hosts ‘Site 2’ Visit

File photo Ships from the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Maritime Administration (MARAD) ready reserve force serve as a backdrop to the “north pond” at Site 2 at Alameda Point. Caspian terns use the pond and its surroundings as a nesting site. The city will host a tour of Site 2 next Monday.

The city invites the public to visit the southwest shoreline of Alameda Point at 3:30 p.m., next Monday, Oct. 26. The area was an environmental cleanup area known as Site 2 and includes wetlands and a covered landfill.

The visit offers an opportunity to see first-hand a normally off-limits scenic part of Alameda Point on property that belongs to the Department of Veterans Affairs. Meet at City Hall West, 950 W. Mall Square at Alameda Point.

The city is not providing a bus. Transportation to the site is by carpooling only.
