Let's keep that ball rolling! Please join the upcoming Ashby + North
Berkeley BART community meeting on Monday August 31st from 6:00-8:00
<https://engage.squarespace-mail.com/r?m=5f46da5190b9134bdbca903b&u=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.cityofberkeley.info%2Fbartplanning%2F&w=5bdcc237372b962af7866b47&l=en-US&s=iM0_mvStAxm1LtNOlITlcj1S-ew%3D>.
This is our opportunity to push for maximizing transit-oriented housing for
everyone at both Ashby and North Berkeley BART and to shape the design for
Ashby BART and Adeline Street. We have specific planning concepts to
advocate for including: the 2-lane option, space for Flea Market, ground
floor retail, and of course, maximize housing!
