Project Description:

Point Molate, the last undeveloped natural headland on San Francisco Bay (with rare native grassland habitat and healthy eel grass beds) is located in Richmond, a low-income community of color in the East Bay. The Point Molate Alliance is a community group now fighting to keep this natural treasure as a public resource and future regional park as well as a job-generating destination for all of our citizens. PMA was formed in 2018 to actively oppose an unpopular city plan to sell this off for a pricy 1,000 unit or more private housing development.
