The City of Alameda will be able to use $400,000 to develop policies and procedures regarding transportation at Alameda Point thanks to The Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC). The money comes in the form of two grants.
The first $150,000 will fund staff time needed to develop a Transportation Demand Management Plan which will help create a transit-oriented community that minimizes automobile travel and encourages the use of alternative modes of transportation.
Most associate the Biblical character Job with suffering. “The Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away,” is a quote from the Book of Job familiar to most people. The city of Alameda recently suffered a loss of some $1 million when it learned that the Rockefeller Foundation giveth and the Rockefeller Foundation taketh away.
