Community Meeting re. Safe Travel on Ohlone Greenway @ Albany Senior Center
May 23 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Do you or your family ride on the Ohlone Greenway? Attend this meeting to work on making it safer for all.

Albany Community Action member Céline Wallace set up a meeting with 2 police departments hosted by Albany’s Mayor and Vice Mayor about safety on the Greenway. Céline organized this after her husband was held up at gunpoint on the greenway a few weeks ago, but before a Greenway shooting/murder took place in late April.

Representatives from the Albany and El Cerrito Police Departments will be on hand to provide information on crime trends and strategies affecting safe travel on the Ohlone Greenway.

Berkeley Sunday Streets @ Shattuck from Rose to Channing, and continues on Durant to Telegraph.
Jun 3 @ 11:00 am – 4:00 pm

The streets are closed to cars and open to YOU – get out and enjoy!!

Get out and connect with your community and urban environment in a transformative way!

Sunday Streets (also called “Open Streets”)  closes streets to automobile traffic for a day so that people may use the space for other physical and social activities. The streets become parks as people replace car traffic. People walk, bike, skate and dance and play. Everyone from businesses and community organizations to musicians and artists use the space creatively, engaging the public and providing spontaneity and discovery. This temporary public space inspires creativity and change for the better, on that day – and beyond.

The first Sunday Streets Berkeley was on October 14, 2012. More than 42,000 people came to Shattuck Ave to stroll, skate, cycle, dance, play in the street. People came from all over the Bay Area to experience Berkeley anew. Local Berkeley businesses reported a 30-50% increase in sales on the day of the event. The first-ever Sunday Streets Berkeley was by all measures a great success.

Ride on over!

Previous routes have been expanded – Sunday Streets now runs the length of Shattuck from Rose to Channing, and continues on Durant to Telegraph.

Here’s an interactive map of Sunday Streets activities.
