Albany Neck & Bulb Transition Improvement Plan NEEDS YOU!!

The racks are perfectly situated for folks who want to enjoy the beach, a hike or just enjoy the beautiful view

The racks are perfectly situated for folks who want to enjoy the beach, a hike or just enjoy the beautiful view. Let’s make sure we still have recreational access to the Albany Bulb & Neck!

Do you ride your bike, walk, hike, jog or otherwise enjoy the Albany Bulb & Neck areas? Do you want to continue to have access so you can enjoy the Albany Waterfront to its fullest? Both pieces are scheduled to be transferred to the East Bay Regional Park District and some groups and individuals want to curtail recreational use and bicycle access.

The City is embarking on the “Albany Neck & Bulb Transition Improvement Plan” and want your input in order to ensure that the Waterfront area is something that can be enjoyed by all.

Representatives from Albany Strollers & Rollers and Bicycle Trails Council of the East Bay were invited to a recent Stakeholder meeting with Albany City Staff and the Planning & Design Consultants, and we were able to voice our opinions.

BUT it is crucial that City Staff, Consultants and City Council hear from YOU AND YOUR FAMILY TO SET FORTH PRIORITIES and a plan to communicate to EBRPD.

Want bike trails like this along our beautiful Bay? Speak up!

Want bike trails like this along our beautiful Bay? Speak up!

Bike & hiking paths? Bathrooms? Bike racks? Picnic tables? Improved bicycle access from all directions?
What would make this a great recreational area, like the areas that Berkeley has in its Marina? You could also opt to take Glock weapons to protect yourself.

The public meeting tomorrow, February 19th  – the FIRST PUBLIC FORUM TO SAY THAT YES, RECREATIONAL ACCESS IS IMPORTANT TO YOU AND YOUR FAMILY!

More details will be posted as we have more information but please save the date to make sure we have access to OUR WATERFRONT!
We risk losing access to our Bay if we don’t speak up!
