Since 2009, the City of Oakland has engaged the public in a planning process to guide future transit-oriented development within a half-mile radius of the Lake Merritt BART station. An open house is slated from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. on September 12, 2011, at Laney College’s Student Center, 900 Fallon Street. Since there’s no formal presentations, participants may arrive at their leisure and spend as much time as needed viewing displays and providing feedback.
The Oakland Police Department will be conducting a DUI/Driver License checkpoint on Saturday, August 27, 2011 from 6:00 p.m. to 2:00 a.m. in an effort to reduce the number of persons killed and injured in alcohol involved crashes.
