We will meet in Berkeley below San Pablo on 8th and Camelia. The area is a mixed use light industry and residential. There are small cottages, churches, and retail stores nearby. The area is also part of the West Berkeley plan that is a hot topic at the Berkeley City Council now. The area has historically been zoned to protect the light industry use and small business and has been home to many artists studios. The fear is that the changes the city is proposing will drive up prices and make it unaffordable for artists.
Camelia is parrallel to Gilman and one block west on San Pablo.
