PANIL meets the 2nd Wednesday of the month at Piedmont Gardens, 110 41st Street, 11th Floor (Sky Room)

November meeting -- Wednesday, 11/14, 7:00pm

Note: PLEASE NOTE TIME CHANGE FOR THIS MEETING ONLY. We will have a packed agenda, and have arranged to be able to start early.

7:00–7:30 Crime Prevention Council with OPD Officer Anna Sanchez and Neighborhood Services Coordinator Brenda Ivy. Bring your public safety concerns and hear about neighborhood crime trends.

7:30–8:15 California College of the Arts (CCA) and the expected developer, Equity Community Builders, and Emerald Fund, present plans for redevelopment of the CCA campus at Broadway and College, as CCA consolidates its facilities at its San Francisco campus in the next few years. Plans call for up to 600 units of housing, including a 19-story tower. Once plans are submitted to the city, there will be an extensive formal public comment process (including an Environmental Impact Study) for the project.

8:15–9:00 Oakland Dept of Transportation returns with its proposed responses to our July meeting, where over 60 neighbors gave feedback about pedestrian and traffic safety along Pleasant Valley Ave, especially at Piedmont Ave and Gilbert St intersections.

The Piedmont Avenue Neighborhood Improvement League (PANIL)  is an association of residents in Oakland founded in 1974, with six Steering Committee members and nine standing committees. [See contacts page.]

PANIL  keeps residents informed about life in this neighborhood as well as matters related to City government and City services.
