> Timothy,
> The sites for the markers are still to be determined. We will be 
> taking public input on potential locations for the markers. Initially 
> there will be 3-5 markers installed with a plan for more markers in 
> the future if additional funds can be secured. Because of the funding, 
> one of the markers will be in the Lake Merritt watershed. The markers 
> will generally be situated in locations where a creek is not 
> immediately visible. There are a number of factors that go in to 
> choosing an appropriate marker location and these issues will be 
> discussed at the meeting. If you are not able to attend the meeting, 
> I’m also happy to have a phone conversation with you about this.
> Regarding the status of the Sausal Creek Project, we had a setback in 
> the design phase because the consultant we were planning to use for 
> the design closed their business. We have been working with Alameda 
> County, our partner on the project, to secure a contract that will 
> allow us to begin the design phase. We plan to start design this spring.
> Please also feel free to give me a call if you have further questions.
