December Neighborhood Meeting Agenda
Public Safety Presentations
December 1, 2014
Serra Adult Education School
7:00 RHNC announcements and business. We will discuss sending a letter to the Bay Area Air Quality Management District regarding the shipment of Bakken crude oil through Richmond. This issue has been gaining attention in local, regional, and national media. The Bakken is a large oil field in North Dakota. Shipping the crude oil by rail over long distances is a controversial topic and many groups are raising concerns about safety. We will discuss the matter and decide if we want to join other neighborhood councils in sending a letter asking for a regulatory review of the practice.
7:15 A neighbor will present their plans for an addition to a residential home. We will then discuss sending a letter to the design review committee.
7:30 Police officers from Beat 7 will give a report on local crime.
7:45 Representatives from the BART police department and from the Richmond police department will discuss safety along the pedestrian paths leading to the El Cerrito Del Norte BART station. This is a follow-up to the letter the RHNC sent to public safety representatives last month asking for more information about crime prevention activities.
8:15 Fix Our Ferals, a local organization that works to control the neighborhood’s wild cats will give a brief presentation.
8:30 Closing business.
This will be the last meeting of the year. We do not have a regular meeting in January.
We hope to see you there.
