Welcome to this week’s edition of The Broad Brush, your weekly headline review. Here’s what happened in Alameda this week.

The Planning Board put the brakes on the city’s plans for a new emergency operations center, with members saying the building’s designers need to make some changes before moving forward.

The board voted 5-1 to approve a site plan detailing the placement of the emergency operations center and a new fire station to be built on a half-acre site at the corner of Grand Street and Buena Vista Avenue, and to hold off on okaying the design of the operations center until changes are made. Board member John Knox White voted against approving the site plan; member Mike Henneberry was absent.
