Construction of the Cross Alameda Trail, through Jean Sweeney Open Space Park, is set to begin Wednesday.

Beginning Monday, Alameda police will begin strictly enforcing the trespassing ordinance at the property, for people camping there and other Alameda residents alike. Notices are posted at entrances to the parcel.

City officials say that both the Alameda Police Department homeless outreach team and case workers from Operation Dignity, a non-profit organization that has been providing case management, met directly with each homeless person living onsite to help them work out a relocation plan. Operation Dignity also provided storage bins and free storage space for personal belongings.

Officials report that eight people are now in either permanent or interim housing with almost ten other people on housing waiting lists.

The city budget for the fiscal year that began July 1st, includes $120,000 for additional homeless initiatives.

The second phase of construction, which is the most eastern third of the park, should begin this fall and be completed in early summer 2018.

Construction hours are Monday through Friday from 7 am until 5 pm with intermittent Saturdays from 8 am to 5 pm.
