The City of Alameda is poised to eliminate the $150,000 cap on its public art fee as part of an overhaul of the policy. The Alameda Planning Board is scheduled to discuss the cap and other proposed policy revisions during its meeting on March 13, 2017. Staff is recommending the city maintain its existing 1 percent of development cost fee for public art but remove the maximum amount that a developer must either spend to install the art on-site or pay the city an in-lieu fee.
