Introducing Development Alerts!

Development Alerts

With the economy in rebound mode, things are developing in Alameda. We here at The Alamedan know you care deeply about the shape of things to come, so we've been expanding the site's development coverage to make sure you know what new developments are being considered or built, where development is happening, when decisions are being made and why all of this is happening now.

We're already your premier, one-stop source for development coverage, offering breaking news stories with the details on proposed and new developments, a development map that plots out what's being built where and our Developing in Alameda explainer series, which gets deeper into the stories to help you understand who's developing what, and why.

Today we're introducing our new Development Alerts - e-mailed updates intended to let you know about new development proposals as soon as we do and to provide you with the information you need to have your say. We'll be scouring development applications, the city's permit database and meeting agendas to make sure you have the information you need about what's developing around you and also, how you can have your say about it (reader tips are also welcomed). If you'd like to receive the alerts, you can sign up by clicking here. We'll get those rolling in a few weeks.

The new e-mail alerts are one of several changes we've been making and will be making over the coming months to strengthen and sharpen The Alamedan's local coverage. if you'd like to support more coverage of local development, you can contribute online through the Alameda Community News Project’s fiscal sponsor, Community Initiatives, or by sending a check to Community Initiatives (with Alameda Community News Project in the register), 354 Pine Street Suite 700, San Francisco, CA 94104.

As always, we welcome your suggestions for making our coverage better meet your needs. If you've got some thoughts on how we can better keep you in the loop on local development, please feel free to e-mail me at

Thanks for reading!
