I'm excited to see the UC Village project underway. I've supported this project from the start and through my efforts and that of my advocacy group, the project was made more environmentally sustainable. This project will have excellent bicycle and pedestrian access, including Albany's first cycletrack - a dedicated path for cyclists to access the store. These amenities and a new crossing at Dartmouth St. mean that the residents of West Albany will have realistic ways to access the grocery store by walking or bicycling. Also included in this project through my efforts are solar panels on the root of the senior housing project.
It's also wonderful to see Albany receive its first senior housing project.
This project will revitalize this section of San Pablo Avenue and will be great for the City's coffers as well.
