Parking Permits in the Neighborhood

Monday, November 16, 2015

For those of you who live in a Residential Parking Permit (RPP) zone, you probably have noticed that the RPP fees have increased. This occurred as part of the annual adjustments made to the Master Fee Schedule for our entire city. We discussed this at two public hearings at the Council's Finance Committee, and at a full City Council meeting back in June of this year.

City Approves Redesigned College Ave Safeway Project

Saturday, January 5, 2013

The Rockridge pedestrian has won in several substantial ways with this negotiated project;
the walk street is now wider and in the right place, relative to 63rd Street, and the bulk of the
building is much reduced. These are subtle points that eluded our Planning Commission, but, through the hard work of a few volunteers, we have made a lasting impact that will be a
benefit to the community for years to come.—Jerome Buttrick, Architect and negotiating team member.
