The East Bay Regional Park District has proposed a project which would eliminate the current rigging area and most of the current parking.
There are several activities coming up that may well decide if Albany Beach remains viable as a site to launch kites:
- May 24 at 7:00pm, Berkeley Yacht Club in Berkeley Marina - SFBA and local kiteboarders meet on to discuss the latest revisions to the site plan and develop an approach for the next two meetings. The meeting will be hosted by Jim McGrath.
- June 2, 2017 at the Coastal Conservancy offices in downtown Oakland -Review of the project by the Coastal Conservancy, a funding agency, at a meeting of the Water Trail Implementation Group.
- Monday, June 5 at 5:30 p.m.,Bay Area Metro Center, 375 Beale Street San Francisco Yerba Buena, First Floor -The district's plan will be reviewed by BCDC's Design Review Board.
