Alameda Point Collaborative (APC) is hosting an open house at 10 a.m., Saturday, Dec. 7, at the Alameda Wellness and Medical Respite Center on McKay Avenue. APC will present the draft Good Neighbor Policy and provide updates on the design and development of the project. A question-and-answer session will follow along with a brief tour of the facility. 

An Alameda resident and student at Bishop O’Dowd High School, Abigail Gonzalez, recently traveled to Washington, D.C., to participate in the 2019 Ignatian Family Teach-In for Justice. The annual gathering promotes social justice and solidarity by challenging people to participate in caring for others. The main talking points of the weekend were climate justice and immigration.

As the ball sailed through the uprights, and the clock struck zero, the Encinal Jets had done something they hadn’t done in nine years — secured a place in the North Coast Section championship. Senior John Brindley’s 17-yard field goal gave No. 1 seed Encinal an enthralling 24-21 win over No. 4 seed De Anza High of Richmond last Friday night at Willie Stargell Field in Alameda.

“I just zoned everything out, took my steps and kicked the ball,” Brindley said. “I kicked it. I just waited, and then I didn’t know how to react after. I just ran around.”

At Tuesday’s City Council meeting after the Alameda Sun went to press, Council voted on a plan for new homes located at 2800 Fifth St. Pulte Home Company, LLC, looks to construct 69 buildings containing 357 residential units in a new phase for the 17.2-acre Alameda Landing waterfront mixed-use development.

On Oct. 14, the Planning Board approved the application that also includes: 5,000 square feet of commercial space, internal roadways and alleys, parks and open space.

A number of incidents involving pedestrians, motor vehicles and bicyclists have recently marred Alameda’s tranquility. Many of these — and those in the past — involve people, young and old, misunderstanding the city’s ordinances that govern how we all must interact safely.
