July 6, 2012: RCPC Legal Defense Fund for a Fitting Building

Are you worried that the proposed Safeway project is just too big for the beleaguered two-lane College Avenue? Are you afraid it will overwhelm the neighborhood, threaten nearby small businesses, or worsen already congested traffic flows?

The RCPC board shares your concerns, and suspects the issue may ultimately play out in the courts. This could be expensive.

To plan for this possibility, RCPC established the Rockridge Legal Defense Fund. If Safeway's plans and power concern you, consider sending a check, or using the donate button on the RCPC website. Donations are tax deductible, and all donations are welcome.

The board anticipates that donations will be used to help support the fight for a Safeway store of appropriate size and scale for Rockridge. Funds not fully used for legal fees connected with this project will be retained for future cases in which RCPC may need legal help to uphold meaningful zoning regulations and to maintain and enhance the livability of our mixed-use neighborhood and the pedestrian-oriented shopping options along College Avenue.

In the past, RCPC used legal means to push for a better design for the Dreyer's building, and to help win funds for the community and public schools to mitigate impacts from the Caldecott Tunnel Fourth Bore project. Similar steps may be necessary to encourage Safeway to listen to community concerns; your help will be critical. Mail checks to RCPC, 4123 Broadway, PMB 311, Oakland, CA 94611.
