Hatfields, McCoys Come To Terms
City, University Announce Pact
The Daily Cal is covering the agreement made between the city and the university. The important details:
- 15 year agreement
- University pays the city $1.2 million per year (*up from $500,000)
- Annual fees increase by 3% each cycle.
- Only 1,270 parking spaces in 2020 LRDP (*down from 2,300)
It seems that, like any good compromise, both parties have left feeling unfulfilled. But, it does appear that the strained town-gown relations in Berkeley have been at least partially relieved. That is, unless you give any weight to the typical overdramatic quotes given by Berkeley City Council officials...
Councilmember Dona Spring, the most vocal of the three council members to vote against the agreement, said the city should have gotten more money from the university.
Anyone else feel a little turned on by that quote?Email This Post!
