Fellows in the News

City planners held a “pop-up” event Saturday [June 13, 2015] on Adeline Street to listen to concerns of community bikers and pedestrians about the Adeline Corridor Plan.

The city hosted a walking and biking tour to discuss the potential use of public spaces along Adeline Street — such as street enhancements, sidewalk improvements and plaza spaces — as part of a community outreach effort regarding the city’s development plan in South Berkeley. The city received a $750,000 grant and is investing $500,000 to study infrastructure, housing and accessibility. The city also hired consultants from MIG, an urban-planning firm.

“It’s a very inclusive participatory process,” said community engagement coordinator Jamillah Jordan.

Jordan said MIG did a similar pop-up event in Laguna Beach and was successful in reaching out to a variety of residents. For Jordan, the goal is to have passersby participate in the city’s community workshops.
