Berkeley High Firearm Incidents:

Four firearms have been confiscated from students at Berkeley High School since January. In response to these and other incidents, the district formed a safety committee that has advised requiring students and staff to wear identification badges on campus and has already allotted $89,000 for additional staffing and safety training.

Struggle to End Business Vacancies:

As city leaders aim to reduce the number of business vacancies, a sit-lie ordinance outlawing sitting or lying on sidewalks during business hours, the elimination of certain business districts' quotas capping the number of certain types of business that can locate in an area and the easing of permit processes have all been discussed as possible solutions.

Wheeler hall Protests:

Following a Wheeler Hall March 2 sit-in, nine demonstrators stood atop a ledge on the hall. After negotiations with administrators, an Operational Excellence town hall was proposed and agreements were made about student conduct charges. A month later, Berkeley Police Review Commission voted to investigate Berkeley Police Department's actions.

State Cuts to the UC:

On March 24, Gov. Jerry Brown signed into law $500 million in cuts to the UC. But when Brown declared he was done negotiating with Republicans, his plan for tax extensions was jeopardized and the picture for the UC began to look bleaker. If the tax extensions are not passed, the university's $500 million cut could double in size.
