Berkeley's Downtown Plan Killed

New, 15 comments

Ouch: four years in the making, Berkeley's plan to rethink downtown by bringing in more housing and jobs (i.e., taller buildings) has been unanimously killed. This, after the plan had already been approved by 7 to 2 in July 2009. The about-face is an apparent result of a dogpile of community opposition, and Mayor Tom Bates' proposal to start over. Done, and done. [Daily Cal, previously]
