How about the OZ not even looking at the speakers or Hannigan working on her speech while the Citizens spoke. Real signs of disrespect--right on

Why do you keep diverting the conversation away from the topic? You want to act like school yard children then start your own thread. Either you don't know what the issues are or your just acting as obstructionists.

Didn't see it, was working a 12 hour shift. How about this as a wake up call to our flunkie staff:

"IN CONGRESS, July 4, 1776.

The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America,

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation."

This is worthy consideration for taxpayers and their employees. Shape up employees, your paycheck is not guaranteed.

gomes does that a lot too, flipping pages and tapping her pencil when a speaker is not her cup of tea.

and how do you propose "shape up" be measured? your fab four has alienated the entire staff by rejecting all their effort, from the c.m. on down the line. maybe brown can hang around city hall and make sure they are shaping up since she does not have a day job any more.

admonitions that staff should shape up, wise up, etc. are facile remarks. city manager keen has no choice now but to consult with ms. gomes on a frequent basis to avoid wasting taxpayer funds. ms. gomes is now the de-facto mayor.

Lets make it real easy for them to get started: 1.) Create a policy that states all developers FINAL proposals must be submitted 90 days prior to first public hearing. 2.) Produce a written response explaining why the "Shovel Ready" parking lot is non functional.

Many of the COV staff people can be very thankful they do not work for me. I would have fired several of them years ago for poor performance.

Before COV, GOBs and VIBers consider what to do next for downtown waterfront, they might want to take a really really long reading lesson of this article from the man himself, Mark Cuban.....

MARK CUBAN: America's Economy Has Split Into Two Different Worlds, And One's About To Die Out
http://www.businessinsider.com/which-usa-do-y...

When it comes to getting a job, the USA has bifurcated into two employment worlds, the digital world and the brick and mortar world.

The brick and mortar world is everything you physically touch. Its manufacturing. Its retail sales. Its distribution. Its construction. Etc.

The digital world is everything defined by what you find on computing devices. It can be on your desk, in your hand or in the cloud.

What has happened is that the brick and mortar world has had every bit of intelligence that can be sucked out of it completely removed. Any information that can be created, identified or recognized is being captured in as automated a process as possible and delivered to “big data” or even small data databases in the cloud. What used to require some intelligence at the brick and mortar work place has been seeded and ceded into the cloud.

Interesting indeed....
and to a certain point so minimalistic urban character European, with exposed fire suppression/plumbing visible to all with shutoff valves open to vandalism, if not locked out. Cluster mailboxes visited after work in the hope that "my mail is still there" and after that we will hang in the drafty stairwell to chat each other up. It is all so quaint and modern....

In this specific case the building abuts I-80, swell for those directly in vibration proximity of rumble strips, commuter and truck traffic. I-80 is our major truck route, is it not?

This reminds me of the complex directly in spitting distance of BART also in Oakland destined to become a senior citizen housing project. Lucky for those people someone torched it before this ill conceived project could hoist sleepless nights onto anyone, in this case the elderly, not that I condone this type of action though!

I agree a well thought out plan for the future will have to include a certain amount of cluster housing, with an eye of stacking them higher then usual. However along with that I also would hope that units would not be placed in those areas already producing massive amounts of pollutants.

If we are concerned at all about providing a better environment for families do not locate them where it is least appropriate, into available infill areas for the sake of building in already unhealthy and toxic neighborhoods.
