Please Note – Due to a conflicting special session of the Berkeley City Council with high interest among our membership, the BDC membership meeting will be an early and brief affair to ratify new board members. (State Sen. Nancy Skinner will be rescheduling to join us at a later date TBD.) At 6pm, the city council will be meeting to discuss important proposals regarding land-use and zoning reform to comply with state law. Before that starts, please join us and vote! The details are now:
Thursday, March 25th from 5:30pm to 5:45pm | BDC Membership Special Pop Up Meeting!!
Please plan to attend and cast your vote for BDC Board Nominees!
