Contrary to reports you may have heard, Berkeley Iceland is still designated a Berkeley landmark. After two hours of testimony and significant new documentation, the city council voted to put off the final decision on the landmark until 17 July at a special time - 6 pm. They will be taking additional comments up until 5pm Friday. My full notes of the day follow:
Summary of July 10
July 10 [AM] â€“
Current owners enter into purchase contract with a developer the day of the hearing. The contract is apparently contingent on the success of the landmark appeal. This precludes any formal negotiations with other parties to settle the landmark and ownership issues.
