The Berkeley El Cerrito Corridor Access Project (“BECCAP”) is underway, and numerous opportunities for public participation are either available now or coming up. We believe that enhancing station access is a critical step to enable BART to minimize replacement parking and allow the site design to maximize the benefits to the community.
Please check out and participate in the following opportunities:
- July 17 from 9am-1pm: BART will be at the El Cerrito Plaza farmer’s market
- July 19 from 2pm-3pm: BECCAP Zoom office hours: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/83462944655
- July 21 from 5pm-6pm: BECCAP Zoom office hours: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/84858842452
Additionally, there is an “online open house” website that is live and available for the public to participate anytime through August 20. This website has a lot of information about the project, plus an opportunity to fill in a survey as well as make suggestions on a map!
