The maintenance website (https://maintenance.housing.berkeley.edu) will offline starting Tuesday 10/25 at 6:00PM until Friday 10/28 at 10:00AM for a systems upgrade. During this time if you have a maintenance request, please visit, call or email the Village Office front desk to submit a request.
Construction continues apace along Monroe Street. For vehicles and bicycles, it is still generally recommended to avoid Monroe Street.
This week begins excavation down Monroe, west of 10th Street, to the Jackson Street intersection.
Crews are tying-in a sewer line and installing new material using a 'pipe-bursting' method.
Because the sewer main ties-in right in the middle of the intersection, there are traffic impacts to this work.
Flaggers will direct traffic, as well as bright construction signage. At peak traffic times there could be some delays.
Sidewalk areas in the construction areas are blocked; use sidewalks on the opposite side of the street.
Please remember that the speed limit is 15 MPH throughout the entire University Village property.
DO NOT speed through construction areas, especially when flaggers are present or other vehicles are stopped.
Location: UC Village Community center When: 10/26, 7:00- 8:30
On the Agenda: Halloween Costume contest (and gift card prize!), trick-or-treating announcements and safety tips and also a presentation on a proposed project from new VRA board member Rebecca Correa.
From Rebecca Correa: "Codornices Creek, which runs along the south edge the Village, is an asset with its bike trail, educational signage and ecological processes. Have you ever wondered why its fenced off from our community or what is going on with the small play structure and weed lot in that corner of the Village? Wouldn't it be great if we could redesign this space to allow our kids to engage with the creek in an educational and recreational way? I am a masters of Landscape Architecture Thesis Candidate looking at how Urban design responds to waterways like codornices creek. I would love to explore with you possibilities that keep safety in mind but connect us with our local environment and create a fun space."

Join INSPIRE for the second Public Speaking's meeting of the Fall on October 25th, to practice public speaking in a fun and safe environment.
Our Public Speaking meetings follow the TOASTMASTERS' method, a program that helps people improve their public speaking and leadership skills in a very structured way while keeping an informal and welcoming atmosphere among its participants.
It can help in many ways, including being confident in conversations, winning job interviews, and getting to know the other attendees much better than you would usually during other activities!
You don't need to bring anything, just your willingness to participate in the conversation and to learn how to speak in public! No previous TOASTMASTERS or public speaking experience required.
