land swap

The news about the deal between the Alameda Unified School District (AUSD), the city of Alameda and the Alameda Housing Authority is getting some much needed attention. This deal, which has been reported to have been the subject of many closed sessions of the city council and school board, seems to be in need of some “sunshine” to get the facts out, to provide public input to the city council and school board as they give direction to staff and to preserve accessible public record of discussion, directions and decisions made by these governing bodies.
