“We need a public process that includes workshops and public forums that allows the community to participate in developing a vision for Alameda Point. But I don’t believe we have capital or leadership to pull this off.”
This is what one angry resident told Alameda City council after hearing Matarrese’s new proposal.
Another citizen went even further by suggesting that the City Council had been working on Matarrese’s new plan months ago, and wasted the city’s money with SunCal meetings they never planned on moving forward with.
Vice Mayor deHaan immediately squashed this idea.
“I am appalled that we are being accused of having secret meetings. What we need to do is move forward”, said deHaan.
