Alameda News

Many people in Alameda know that I was born and raised here. I attended local schools and my parents have been active members in this community for more than 50 years. In April, I will begin my 26th year as a member of the Alameda Police Department (APD). It is a tremendous honor and privilege to be the Chief of Police in the city where I was born. I am committed to doing everything I can to make Alameda, my hometown, as safe as possible.

Point tenant plans to design next-generation power plant

The underground infrastructure at Alameda Point may be old and in need of replacement, but many of the Navy’s industrial and civic buildings were built to last centuries. One of those buildings is Building 9, a former records warehouse on West Tower Avenue right across the street from the Bladium that is rock solid and worth rehabiltating. 

Some 250 local residents gathered at the Alameda Elks Lodge on Veterans Day last Saturday to honor veterans and active-duty military stationed in the area. The lodge itself boasts 126 members who are veterans. The Elks’ veterans served in World War II, Korea, Vietnam and the current Middle East conflicts. 

 

Part of the vacant military housing near Alameda Landing formerly known as North Housing fetched a winning auction bid of $38 million. 

In order to complete the sale, the current “government” zoning designation must be removed. At the same time, the city recommends removing the government zoning from two adjacent parcels that will soon be transferred to the Alameda Housing Authority and Habitat for Humanity. The residential, multifamily zoning will remain intact. 

This statement was read by Police Chief Paul Rolleri during public comment at the Nov. 7, Alameda City Council meeting.

Good evening Mayor, Vice Mayor, members of the City Council. I’m Paul Rolleri, Police Chief, and I am joined by all of the City Department Heads here before you.
