EBMUD Hosts Developer Forum
The East Bay Municipal Utility District is hosting a half-day forum with developers on Aug. 15, 2019, to discuss the project application process and challenges facing the building industry. Agenda items include the district’s new business office, water conservation, engineering, planning, and pipeline design and infrastructure. Developers have already indicated that they wish to discuss with the district a variety of issues: Allowing master water meters for multi-family attached townhomes and condos; posting updated plans and specifications online; a reimbursement policy for water system improvements; conducting civil site design and engineering processing concurrently; and allowing developers to use district-approved materials and perform more of the work themselves. The event will be held from 8:30-11:30 a.m. at the district’s administrative office at 375 11th St. in Oakland. There is no cost to attend but registration is requested in order to provide for materials and space. Click HERE to register online.
