Naysayers Can Already See Effectiveness of the Center of 'Community' Life's Shared Space
In the past this blog has been critical of the City and School District's ideas around "shared space" as part of the new Emeryville Center of 'Community' Life. This blog has repeatedly aired concerns that the San Pablo Avenue site was too small for all of the activities planned there and the City and School District have always responded that the site is not too small because children don't need dedicated spaces, but that the miracle of "shared space" is going to solve all our City's programming and scheduling issues. So the School District's children are going to share space with the City's general public at the Center of 'Community' Life and all is going to be good. Skeptics can rest assured because it appears that now the City has demonstrated the viability of this idea through a real life example in Temescal Creek Park.
Never shy about admitting when it is wrong, the Tattler will also have to take back its repeated claims that City leaders do too little to provide low-income housing. Indeed, the City has a plan to serve those in the greatest need in our community and has, unbeknownst to many, already put this plan in action.
