Panel discussion:Transportation impact

The League of Women Voters of Alameda is sponsoring a panel discussion on the transportation challenges and opportunities posed by pending waterfront development projects in both Alameda and Oakland

When: 7:00 – 9:00 p.m. on Thursday, September 28

Where: O Club, 641 West Redline Avenue, Alameda

The public is invited to this free event, and light refreshments will be provided. Waterfront developments such as the Oak to 9th project in Oakland, as well as Alameda Point and Alameda Landing in Alameda, will result in large increases in both residential population and commercial activity. How might thousands of additional housing units, new businesses, and related support services proposed for the two cities affect traffic congestion, especially access to and from local freeways and in the island city of Alameda?

Matthew Ridgway, AICP. A principal of Fehr and Peers in San Francisco, Matt headed the transportation planning for both the Oak to 9th Street Project and the Alameda Point Preliminary Development Concept process.

H. E. Christian “Chris” Peeples. Chris has served as Director At Large on the AC Transit District Board since 1997.
