RCPC's April Town Hall: The Future of College Avenue Retail Town Hall and Annual Elections

Saturday, April 9, 2016

What do you want College Avenue to look like in 10 years?

Rockridge today is one of the most successful of Oakland's many business districts, the result of a vision, planning and hard work by the community over many years.

That work brought the Avenue from its days of shuttered retail buildings and vacant lots left in the wake of BART and Highway 24 construction to today's bustling success. Still, today is only a waypoint on a continuum of change.

Growth and time can undo a lot of work. A Òstore closingÓ sign can be a reminder of darker times but is not always a sign of a trend.

RCPC invites you to join your friends and neighbors for an evening exploring the concerns of College Avenue merchants, Rockridge residents, and visiting shoppers. A panel of five speakers will address the problems, concerns, and current successes of the Avenue, then take a look at what the future could hold. Note: The meeting will be held at the *College Avenue Presbyterian Church (CAPC), 5951 College Avenue at Harwood. The discussion begins promptly at 7:30 p.m. and finishes at 9.

RCPC Board Election
This meeting is also RCPC's official annual meeting when board candidates seeking election or reelection introduce themselves to the community and speak briefly of their interest in joining the board.

Plan to arrive at 7 p.m. for board candidate presentations and initial balloting. Ballots may be cast before the Town Hall convenes (7-7:30) and during the meeting (7:30-9 p.m.)
