Three thousand tons of sand was added to the nesting grounds for the least terns at Alameda Point in late February and early March. In the weeks that followed, volunteers from St. George Spirits and the Boy Scouts and Cub Scouts came out to help make the site ready for the arrival of the terns in mid-April.
The San Francisco Bay Area Water Emergency Transportation Authority (WETA) announced two East Bay firms have been pegged to design and construct an operation and maintenance facility at Alameda Point. Overaa Construction of Richmond and Power Engineering Construction of Alameda will be tasked with building the Central Bay Operations and Maintenance Facility.
The Alameda Sun received a copy of this letter addressed to Mayor Trish Spencer, Vice-Mayor Frank Matarrese and Councilman Tony Daysog.
Dear Mayor Spencer, Vice-Mayor Matarrese and Councilman Daysog:
I normally don’t “get involved” with local politics; I’m busy enough as it is with my work and family. But I am so very frustrated with everything that is not happening for Alameda ferry riders that I’m appealing to you for help, either from the city directly or thru the city’s affiliation with the Water Emergency Transportation Authority (WETA).
