On Tuesday, February 16th, 8am-2pm the new electrical transformer for the solar array in West Village will be connected to our local 'grid'.
Although no power interruption is expected during this cut-over, it is possible that buildings 164 & 165 may experience brief, temporary outages.
We will be communicating directly with those residents, but wanted to share this advisory here, as well as to signal that the project is coming to a close soon. Certainly residents' cooperation with temporary parking changes was greatly appreciated during this project!
We apologize in advance any inconvenience this may cause you.
The Village irrigation systems have been turned on. This system will automatically water lawns Monday and Friday morning. The Shrubbery and Ground Covers will be watered on Tuesday and Thursday mornings.
It is advised that residents remove all childrens' toys, bicycles, and other outdoor items on Sunday and Thursday evenings so as to prevent water damage.
If you observe irregularities or broken sprinklers please submit a work order to the front office, by phone, or online with the building number and approximate location.
The area along the south side of Monroe Street just below 10th Street, will have a concrete pad poured in place. This work will begin Tuesday, May 24th and continue through Thursday, June 2nd. Due to the impacts on bus lines & vehicle traffic, please consider bypassing Monroe Street during this work. Pedestrians will need to access bus stops with some care during this work.
This is the first step in a process to move the bus stops on Monroe below 10th Street on both sides of the street. It is expected that the bus stop on the south side of Monroe Street will shift to this location shortly after June 2nd to accommodate other steps in the construction further east down the street.
This change will also eliminate parking spaces on Monroe. Please be aware that when this change begins, competition for parking in this area near Monroe & Jackson Streets will increase, and enforcement will resume, especially for the ‘2 Hour’ zone in front of the Community Center. Additionally some parking spaces along Jackson Street and Red Oak Avenue will be re-striped and re-designated. Please look carefully before parking in this area to be sure you are not in violation.

Mark your calendars for two days of fun activities for grownups, kids, and families on Saturday, June 4, and Sunday, June 5, at the second annual Bay Area Book Festival in downtown Berkeley. Visit the outdoor Kids’ Stage and the library of free books—thousands of free books—at Civic Center Park, or attend indoor programs featuring sessions where kids of all ages (including grownups) can meet authors and find out how they write books.
Civic Center Park will host the Children’s Arena, where you’ll find over 40 exhibitors, and plenty of authors and entertainers. At the East Bay Children’s Book Project there will be a free book for every child. The Lacuna Art Installation, an amazing outdoor library, found in the park opposite the Kids’ Stage, is made out of 50,000 books for grownups and kids alike, and they’re free (so come on Saturday for the best choice)! On Sunday at 11 a.m., the one-and-only Sherman Alexie will introduce his first picture book, “Thunder Boy Jr.” There will be chalk art activities on the street and lots more.
