Asking for your help in preserving Oakland

Dear Neighbors,

With your support we have worked diligently to express to the Planning Commission and Landmarks Preservation Advisory Board the deep concerns many of us have about the proposed tower and development at the CCA site. We will continue our efforts with council members and other officials, and will keep you informed at each step of the process.

The twelve member Steering Committee of the UBA has covered costs of printing, web site host, mailing service, etc., out of pocket. Putting up a booth at Rockridge Out and About was expensive, but it netted us many new followers.

Our goal is to raise $10,000 which will enable us to construct architectural models and 3D visualizations and buy a better web site host. A generous neighbor has offered a $500 matching grant.

Will you help us by sending a donation of whatever size to Upper Broadway Advocates, 5253 College Avenue, Oakland CA, 94618? Unfortunately, we cannot accept credit card or PayPal payments at this time. Please make your check payable to Upper Broadway Advocates. We will maintain accountability for all donations and expenditures.

These donations are NOT tax-deductible but will win you the gratitude of all who want a better, smarter, more affordable development at CCA. We also need more volunteers to distribute flyers, plan community meetings, contact neighbors and neighborhood organizations, do research, maintain our MailChimp service, and much more. Send an email to and let us know your interests.

Many thanks, UBA Steering Committee:

Kirk Peterson, Chair

Helen Brainerd
