Berkeley Labs announce public meetings in Bay Area

A schedule of public meetings for the proposed sites of Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory's second campus were announced Monday. The meetings will include presentations from lab representatives and recommendations from community members. They will also examine the potential each site has for the development. The finalists in the running for the second campus are Alameda Point in Alameda; Berkeley Aquatic Park West in West Berkeley; Brooklyn Basin in Oakland; Emeryville/Berkeley, on property occupied by the Berkeley Lab; Golden Gate Fields, spanning Berkeley and Albany; and Richmond Field Station, a site owned by the University of California, which runs the Berkeley Lab. The second campus is intended to consolidate existing laboratory programs around the East Bay. More>
