The Verizon plan for a large cell antenna base station on the roof of Star Bethel church has moved forward and will be presented to the City of Oakland Planning Commission for approval on November 1st at 6:00 pm at City Hall.

The Planning Commission will approve this plan unless they hear from YOU! 
  • The Planning Commission hearing is the community's chance to voice opposition to a plan that is; unsafe, intrusive and incompatible with the Golden Gate neighborhood. 
  • When neighbors show up in a large organized group to the Planning Commission, it does make a difference.
  • Whatever issues we bring up at the Planning Commission,  will go to the City Council if we choose to appeal. 

      Things to do:
  1. Come to the meeting to prepare for the Planning Commission this Saturday October 14th at The Golden Gate Library meeting room at 2:00pm. ( If you can't make this meeting but can be at the Planning Commission email me so we can get a count.)
  2. SAVE the DATE:  Planning Commission hearing on November 1st at 6:00 pm at the City Council chambers at City Hall. 
  3. Write a letter to the Star Bethel Missionary Baptist Church expressing your concern.  Address your letter to Dr. E. J. Ward mail or drop off at 5800 San Pablo Ave Oakland, CA 94608 
  4. Write a group email to the Planning Commissioners: Adhi Nagraj  Chair,; Jahmese Myres; Jonathan Fearn; Tom Limon; Clark Manus; Amanda Monchamp; Emily Weinstein

        Hope to see you at the Golden Gate Library this Saturday!
