Dublin hoping to join suitors wooing new Berkeley lab campus

It may not boast bayfront views, but Dublin officials are banking on state recognition and the success of two national laboratories located nearby to help lure Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory to open a second campus in town. The City Council on Tuesday is expected to agree to provide a letter of support for SunCal companies' bid to land the 2-million-square-foot campus that is scheduled to open in December 2015. The council will meets at 7 p.m. at city hall, 100 Civic Plaza. Proposals are due March 4 and Lawrence Berkeley Lab expects to make a decision by June. More>
