      SJSU Urbp students, alums:

      Urban Planning Coalition is now listed on the TALC website as a member.
      (under South Bay)

      Unfortunately, we are an affiliate - I requested that correction, and adding
      the link to our website. I will send the correction as soon as it's done.

      Meanwhile, please consider attending the meeting and party tomorrow in SF if
      you can make it.

      Irvin/UPC Liaison to TALC

      Please join us on Wednesday, December 11 as we bid farewell to Rachel
      Peterson. We will also be celebrating 5 amazing years of working together
      under the umbrella of BATLUC/TALC.

      Next week is Rachel's last as Executive Director of Urban Ecology and as the
      President of TALC's Board of Directors. Rachel played a pivotal role in
      building TALC into an important regional force - first as co-chair, then in
      obtaining its initial funding, and most recently as it's President.

      So come celebrate, we'll have food, wine and beer and some time to toast
      with Rachel. The celebration follows our regional meeting (agenda below)
      But feel free to just attend the celebration.

      Wednesday December 11
      7-8:30 p.m.
      Sierra Club, SF
      85 Second St., Third Floor
      (at corner of Mission St., near Montgomery BART)

      Hope to see you there!

      At the October TALC meeting we reviewed the list of candidate projects and
      sent a letter to Senator Perata with a list of projects that TALC members
      supported and opposed. Ezra Rapport, Perata's consultant has now released
      the proposed "tier one" list of projects. These will be discussed at the
      final Bridge toll meeting December 13, then forwarded to the state
      legislature. At the meeting we will:
      1. Review how TALC's project positions compares to the proposed plan.
      2. Vote whether to support this initial project list (staff recommends
      3. Discuss a strategy for moving ahead in 2003, including how high to
      prioritize this issue.
      To see our recommendations to Sen. Perata, and links to the past bridge toll
      advisory committee meetings go to www.transcoalition.org and the bridge toll
      campaign on the home page.

      4) Plan Release of Best and Worst Developments of the Bay Area Report:
      Brainstorm a date and place in February to release this report. The goal is
      to get great regional media in a show of support for ABAG's adoption of the
      Smart Growth alternative. Should it be a whistle stop tour? A regular press
      conference? Help us plan, and execute it.
