Street Cleaning Hours & Lake Merritt Development Town Hall Meeting
- Councilmember Nancy Nadel will be holding her monthly "coffee hours" this Saturday January 27th at the World Ground Cafe, 308 Jackson Street; 11 am to 1pm.
I'll be at the Cafe to give Councilmember Nadel the 300 signatures gathered in support of installing a crosswalk at 15th/Jackson and changing street cleaning hours from nighttime to daytime hours. I'm also going to explore the possibility of changing street cleaning from weekly to twice a month. Feel free to attend the coffee hours to support any of these changes, express concerns about them, or to discuss other neighborhood issues. Email me if you have any questions: zachseal@...
