Safeway vs. Berkeley

New, 5 comments

"It will ruin my neighborhood and community and cause traffic chaos," said a 10-year-old girl at a Berkeley City Council meeting about Safeway's plans to expand its Claremont-College Avenue store. A good chunk of the grocery's neighboring residents oppose the expansion, but there's little they can do to stop it now. Matt Francois spoke on behalf of Safeway and said the grocery store can move forward with its plans with or without a mitigation agreement that the Council may approve. [Berkeleyside]
