The Alameda City Council will consider on July 6, 2016, increasing the city’s public art fee cap to $500,000. The hike is among nearly a dozen proposed changes in the city’s public art fee program, which was established in 2003. Currently, new commercial, industrial and residential developers with project development costs in excess of $250,000 are required to spend 1 percent — capped at $150,000 — on the acquisition and installation of public art. The change is among nearly a dozen proposed art fee program revisions. Click here
