What will replace Article 26 in protecting Alameda from construction of housing that is “inappropriate” for Alameda?


A lot has changed since 1973, and our city and state have implemented a number of reforms focused on quality of life, historic preservation, and environmental stewardship. These include the Alameda Historic Preservation Ordinance, Alameda Design Review Ordinance, and California Environmental Quality Act, as well as oversight from the San Francisco Bay Conservation and Development Commission. Extensive public review consistent with our city’s General Plan will still be required for notable new construction.
