They include the once bustling scene on Telegraph Avenue, a sign in a pool hall, Totland, Berkeley Iceland, Lake Anza and, of course, the Codornices slide.
They include the now-closed pier, the UC Berkeley eucalyptus grove and the tunnel between Codornices Park and the Rose Garden.
Part of Adeline Street has been completely repaved and improvements are planned on University Avenue at the marina. Live Oak Park’s community center is being rebuilt. It’s all part of T1 bond measure work underway now.
Rescue swimmers from the Berkeley Fire Department pulled a 35-year-old woman from the San Francisco Bay on Thursday night, authorities report.
The Berkeley City Council voted Tuesday night in favor of a public planning process that could one day bring San Francisco Bay Ferry service to Berkeley.
Marina funding is at a breaking point and, unless investment is made soon, facilities and infrastructure will either require more costly emergency funding or be closed, as was the Berkeley Pier.
