The Alameda Planning Board will hold a "public scoping session" Oct. 24 on a controversial proposal to swap the 12-acre Mif Albright nine-hole golf course for an equal amount of privately owned land and allow the construction of 130 homes on the Mif Albright site.
According to a notice posted on the City of Alameda website, the session will "provide an opportunity for the Alameda community to identify any and all potential environmental issues that should be evaluated in a project Environmental Impact Report (EIR) prior to any final decisions on any aspect of the proposals."
City staff said the EIR will evaluate the effects of three proposals:
• Reconfiguration of the south course at the to accommodate a new nine-hole short course.
• Çonstruction of 130 homes on 12 acres currently occupied by the Mif Albright short course.
• Construction of playing fields on 12 acres of land on North Loop Road.
The city notice said the public session is meant to "better inform the policy discussion regarding the Chuck Corica Golf Complex by the City Council on Dec. 13."
The session will take place during the Planning Board meeting on Monday, Oct. 24, at 7 p.m. in the council chambers.
