Council OK's Demolition of Blighted Property

Following is a press release from the Alameda Planning and Building Department.

At Tuesday's meeting, Alameda's City Council voted to allow the demolition of a house on a blighted piece of property in the Park Street business district. As can be seen clearly in the attached photo, the structure is decrepit and outdated, and the property is suffering from dangerously overgrown vegetation and severe drainage problems.

This horrible blight will be replaced with a vibrant, state-of-the-art temporary automobile deposition facility, as show in this artist's rendering.

When presented with the plans, key stakeholders were ecstatic. "This is truly a dream come true," gushed community activist Frieda Bellows, "It's like a gathering place for cars!"
