The Alamedan's $20,000 Challenge: Alameda Point, Explained

Michele Ellson

Today we’re kicking off our new Alameda Point Explained feature, which we hope will help guide you through what’s happening with existing businesses, toxic cleanup and future development at the Point. Today’s post walks you through the massive planning effort the city is undertaking in an effort to ready the Point for development, and we are hard at work on getting answers to the questions you’ve asked about the Point for a future post.

Alameda Point Explained is just a part of what will be a comprehensive effort to keep you up to speed on Alameda Point – an effort that will include ongoing news coverage, visuals and more. And it’s an extension of our mission to give you the information you need, in the way you need it, to engage on a critically important topic: the fate of a third of the Island.

As always, we welcome your comments and suggestions, because those will help us tailor our coverage to your needs. But we also need your support in order to fully provide the level of coverage we think you deserve.

If you find our Alameda Point coverage useful and would like to see us provide more of it, we hope you’ll consider making a tax-deductible contribution to The Alamedan. Supporting us is easy: You can contribute online or send checks to Community Initiatives (with Alameda Community News Project in the register), 354 Pine Street Suite 700, San Francisco, CA 94104.

Your support will earn you our gratitude, more news and – if you contribute $100 or more – a limited-edition Alamedan T-shirt. It’ll also earn you a place on our donor list, where you’ll be in the company of others just like you who support local news.

Speaking of gratitude and good company, we want to thank Karen Butter, Rochelle Reed and Audrey Lord-Hausman for answering last month’s call for support. We can’t do this without the help of good folks like you.
