On Tuesday, March 5, 2019, Mayor Arreguín and Councilmember Kesarwani held a community meeting to gather input on the future of the former Pacific Steel Casting site for possible twenty-first century manufacturing uses. A short presentation was given on the history of the location, current zoning, manufacturing trends, and sale timeline, followed by a community discussion on ideas for the site. It is likely that the site will change ownership in the next few months, and the City of Berkeley is closely monitoring the process and remediation efforts.
