EMERYVILLE CITY NEWS

City’s Updated Climate Action Plan The State of California is requiring that we all reduce our greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in order to slow, and reduce the impacts of, climate change. Every city in the state must reduce its GHG emissions by 40% from baseline levels by 2030, and by 80% by 2050. That’s a big challenge, but Emeryville is in the enviable position of being a manageable size, with a community that is interested in and committed to positive change. We have updated the City’s 2008 Climate Action Plan to incorporate the new goals, new conditions, and rapidly-developing technology. In the past year, Emeryville participated in the Governor’s Initiative AmeriCorps program, CivicSpark, to increase staff capacity around climate change projects, and especially to update, broaden, and deepen our Climate Action Plan. This involved conducting GHG inventories for City operations and for the community as a whole, doing community outreach on climate mitigation and adaptation, and researching new technologies and best practices. Based on our work on this new Climate Action Plan, Emervyille was selected to participate in the statewide Best Practices Pilot Program, which will showcase Emeryville’s plan as a guide to other cities hoping to establish better guidelines for climate action planning The Climate Action Plan calls for every resident, employee, business owner/manager, property manager, and everyone else in Emeryville to look for opportunities to participate in this daunting task. Our environment, health, and community have a great deal to gain from battling GHGs and climate change. You may even save money by making changes. We’ll help. Learn more at: http://emeryville.org/1055/Climate-Change

EMERYVILLE WINS SUSTAINABILITY AWARD Emeryville was a Gold-Level Winner this year of the Beacon Spotlight Award, given by the Institute of Local Government. We were recognized in the areas of: Community GHG Reductions, Agency GHG Reductions, Energy Savings, Natural Gas Savings, and Sustainability Best Practices.

Bicycle and Pedestrian Projects Completed with Measure BB Funds Alameda County Measure BB passed in 2014 with 70% of the vote. These funds are responsible for the now completed Christie Avenue Bay Trail Extension project in Emeryville, a separated path for cyclists and pedestrians, along the north side of Christie as it curves from Powell St. to Shellmound St. As reported in this Guide in a past issue, the Christie Avenue Bay Trail Gap Closure and Protected Bike and Pedestrian Path transformed the north left turn lane on Christie between Powell Street and Shellmound Street and adjacent sidewalk into a class I path for cyclists and pedestrians with a planting strip and curb separating the improvements from the motor vehicle roadway. At Shellmound turning movements are facilitated by green and white bicycle stencil striping (to accommodate cyclist turning left onto the pathway from northbound on Shellmound Street, ramps, and with signal enhancements, including a bicycle signal head. Find more information on this Measure BB funded project, see this fact sheet: http://www.alamedactc.org/files/managed/Document/13640/A130059_N_Emeryville_ChristieBayTrail_20140410.pdf In addition to the Christie Ave. project, Measure BB funds make Bike to Work Day possible in Emeryville, funding activities, t-shirts and other supplies. Bike to Work Day is always the 2nd Thursday of May, when cyclists are treated to goodies and fun on their way to work and school. In 2016, Bike to Work Day was celebrated on May 12th. Emeryville volunteers staff stations at several locations, including San Pablo Ave at 40th St., the Greenway at 65th St., Adeline St. at 46th St., and this past year, at the new Christie Ave. facility intersection with Shelllmound St. Look for 2017 Bike to Work Day on Thursday May 11th. More info to come in this publication and on the City’s website, as the date draws near: www.emeryville.org/bikeped

Bicycle Safety Riding your bicycle can be fun, practical and green way to see Emeryville. The Emeryville Police Department wanted to remind everyone that there are some safety guidelines all riders should remember. The best way to stay safe on a bike is to sport a bicycle helmet, it can help reduce head injuries. Select a helmet that has a snug, but comfortable fit. Look for helmets that are recommend by the American National Standards Institute or the Snell Memorial Foundation. Helmets should be worn whether riding a bicycle, skateboard, scooter, or roller blades. Children-18 years and younger are required by law to wear helmets (CVC Sections 21212b and 21235c). Adults should do the same, both for your own protection, and to set a good example for the kids.

Here are nine tips for safe bicycle riding: 1. Always wear a helmet when you ride. 2. Obey all traffic signals and signs just like a car. 3. Make eye contact with motorist. 4. Ride single file in the same direction as traffic 5. Be aware of street noises, keep eyes clear of music. 6. Ride in the bike lane or the far right side of the road. 7. Wear bright colors so you can be seen. 8. Check your brakes and tires each time you ride. 9. Avoid riding at night. If you must ride at night, be equipped with proper lighting on the front and rear of your ride (CVC 21201). Keep your two wheeled friend safe and lock it up when away. Crimes are commonly opportunistic try to remember this: Use a U-shaped lock, secure both the front tire and the frame to a stationary object, like as a bike rack. Jot down the serial number and keep it with a photo of the bicycle and the receipt, just in case it should ever be stolen. Motorists also remember we need to share the road. Be patient when passing a bicyclist. Slow down and pass only when it is safe. Do not squeeze the bicyclist off the road. If road conditions and space permit, allow clearance of at least three feet when passing a bicyclist (CVC 21760).

FREE FOR RESIDENTS OF EMERYVILLE: RECYCLING CADDY BAGS Back, by popular demand! Recycling Caddy Bags are now available FREE from the City of Emeryville. Contact Marcy Greenhut at 510-596-3795 or mgreenhut@ emeryville.org

Senior Citizens Emery Go Round Property Based Improvement District (PBID) Rebate

Frequently Asked Questions

On February 2, 2016, the Emeryville City Council adopted a resolution to establish a Property Based Improvement District (PBID) Senior Rebate Program. If you are 65 or older, own your home and pay an assessment on your property for the Emery Go Round PBID, you may apply for a Senior Rebate that could mean savings for you.

HOW DO I APPLY AND RECEIVE A REBATE? Where can I get an application? The application is available through the City of Emeryville Senior PBID Rebate Program: Online: emeryville.org By calling: 510-596-3770 By emailing: rconner@emeryville.org

When can I apply? The deadline for submitting an application is May 1, 2017. Each fiscal year (June-July) the City will send an application to prior applicants at the end of March. If you received the rebate in 2016-you will only need to submit the application and a copy of your tax bill-no other documents will be needed. New applicants can submit their application, proof of age and a W-9 on or before May 1 of each year.

How will I get the Rebate? Eligible seniors will receive the Rebate by mailed check from the City of Emeryville in early June

ELIGIBILITY FOR THE SENIOR PBID REBATE To be eligible for the Senior PBID Rebate: • You or your spouse or registered domestic partner must be 65 years of age or older by December 31, 2016. • You or your spouse or registered domestic partner must own your residence, and are liable for paying the PBID assessment on your principal residence. • You and your spouse or registered domestic partner must claim this residence as your primary residence.

What is a primary residence? A principal residence is a residence in which you reside at least a total of six months each fiscal year (June-July)

I own a multi family residence, reside in one of the units and rent the other units out. Will I be eligible for the Rebate? Yes. As long as you meet all the requirements of the program, you can apply for the Rebate on the proportion of PBID assessment that is applicable to your principal residence.

I am over the age of 65 and own two properties. Can I receive the Rebate on both? No. You and your spouse or registered domestic partner can only receive one Rebate per year for your primary residence. Secondary residences such as rental properties or vacation homes are not eligible for the Rebate.

I am a senior who rents an apartment. Do I qualify? No. The Rebate is available to seniors who own their home and directly pay PBID assessments.

CHANGES IN OWNERSHIP/RESIDENCE I am moving to a new residence, how do I get the rebate? Your move will determine if you qualify for a Rebate at your new residence. You are eligible to apply for a Rebate if you own and live in the residence on the property assessment due date. The following is a general guideline: • If you take possession of your new residence before the PBID property assessment due date, you are eligible to apply for the Rebate on your new residence. In this situation the prior owner would not be eligible. • If you take possession of the residence after the PBID property assessment due date, you cannot apply for the Rebate on that property for that year, but you can apply for your old residence if you owned and lived at the property as of the PBID property assessment due date.

OTHER QUESTIONS Does my PBID assessment have to be paid before I submit my application to receive the Rebate?

I am under age 65 and own my residence, but my spouse is over age 65. Do we qualify? Either you or your spouse or registered domestic partner must be at least age 65 by the end of this year (2016) to qualify. If you are under age 65 and you own your home, but your spouse or registered domestic partner is over age 65 and lives with you, you will jointly qualify for the Senior PBID Rebate.

Yes. Your PBID assessment must be paid in order to submit your application for the rebate. Rebates will not be processed until after the PBID assessment due date.

My property taxes are currently in arrears. Can I submit an application to receive the Rebate? No. An application for the Rebate will not be processed until such time the property taxes are no longer in arrears.

DEVELOPMENT

HYATT PLACE IS NOW OPEN The long awaited Grand Opening of the 175 room Hyatt Place Hotel at 5700 Bay Street is now open, just under two years after construction began.

INTERSECTION APARTMENTS REBUILDING Building Division Staff has been working closely with the developer and builder to clean up and rebuild the fire damaged construction at the residential portion of The Intersection Project at 3800 San Pablo Ave. On July 6, 2016 a 6-alarm fire destroyed the wood framing superstructure above the concrete garage. Shortly after the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives completed their investigation and released the site back to the developer, a Demolition Permit was issued to remove all the fire damaged debris at the site. A separate Building Permit was also issued to repair the fire damaged roof at the recently completed 3900 Adeline apartments across the street. Repair work on the concrete garage will start once Building Division staff has approved the submittals from the Engineer of Record. It is hoped that wood framing above the garage will resume before the end of the year.

Don’t let a Grinch get your stuff

—Some tips to help prevent package theft Millions of packages are due to be delivered this holiday season. The increase in online shopping has led to an increase in package theft, as criminals are often opportunists. There are a few things you can do to prevent someone from stealing your packages. The US Postal Service has several options for delivery that can minimize the risk of your package being stolen. If you create an account online with the US Postal Service (USPS.com) you can choose to have eligible packages delivered to a back or side door or with a neighbor or held at the Post Office. Deliveries can also be held at GoPost locations. GoPost is a self service way to both ship or receive packages. Amazon offers a similar service called Amazon Locker for items purchased on the Amazon website. Both UPS and FedEx have delivery management programs as well. These programs allow you to choose the delivery location and time, or have packages held at FedEx or UPS locations for you to pick up. UPS also has a service called Access Point, that gives you the option of having packages delivered and held at certain business. Be aware that there may be a fee for some services and some services may not be available locally. Keep track of your packages and know when they are supposed to arrive. If you can’t be home and some of the above options are not available, prevent package theft the old fashioned way-make friends with your neighbors. Keep an eye out and help each other. That’s what being part of a community is all about!

Stay Safe! Includes excerpts from “How to Avoid Holiday Package Theft at Home” by Tod Marks http://www.consumerreports.org/holiday-shopping/how-to-avoid-holiday-package-theft-at-home/

Helpful Crime Preventive Tips from the Emeryville Police Department • Enjoying the beautiful Bay Trail bicycle path that runs through Emeryville? Please remember to jot down your bicycle’s make/ model/ speed and serial number. If we find a stolen bicycle it is easier to return to their owners if serial numbers are provided. • Never leave your bicycle outside unsecured. Invest in a good bicycle lock but remember where there’s a will there’s a way, most locks can be defeated. • Take a picture of your bicycle and all of your prized possessions for that matter. For quick documentation take an overall photo and a pic of any identifying marks including serial numbers and proof of sale. • Witnessed a crime? Be careful, get to a safe location and call 911 or The Emeryville Police non- emergency number (510) 596-3700. Sometimes witnesses will follow a suspect and although officers understand you want to help, it can put you in a very dangerous situation. Witnesses should try to stay in one location in case officers need to speak to you. • If you witness a crime and see the suspect- try to remember what the suspect looked like, direction of flight and where the crime happened. Dispatchers may ask you a lot of questions, and this information will be relayed to the patrol officers immediately. • Don’t want to get involved? It’s understandable. You can always report a crime and request to be anonymous. • Remember if you see something, say something. A strong community makes for a safe place for all of us.

EMERYVILLE MICRO SOCCER Welcome to The City of Emeryville’s Micro Soccer Program!

Program Mission

To develop soccer skills, sportsmanship, team building and having fun. This is a non-competitive league, where the emphasis will be on individual and team improvement versus winning. Teams will focus on passing, player development, technical and tactical knowledge and apply it to games.

Expectations of Parents/Families

We are keeping very short rosters; it is very important that participants are in attendance at as many games as possible. If your child cannot make a game, please let a coach or coordinator know in advance so he/she can make arrangements.

This is a non-competitive league. We ask families to encourage their child by cheering them on by acknowledging their skills, while respecting all participants.(i.e. nice pass, nice shot, nice turn, good try). AGE
