Petition to Build Housing on Ashby BART Parking Lots
We the undersigned residents of Berkeley and Oakland petition the BART Board of Directors and the City of Berkeley to designate the Ashby BART station a high priority site for housing. We request that BART and the City assign staff to develop a Request for Proposals to build housing, public open space, better transit, and safer streets.
Goals for Ashby BART development:
1. Maximize housing for all, especially lower income and homeless.
2. Ensure equity and diversity by funding anti-displacement programs.
3. Create public open space with a permanent place for the Flea Market.
4. Build safer streets and better transit for all.
