The Berkeley Neighborhood Preservation Organization (BNPO) was formed to protect neighborhoods from uncontrolled development. Our goals are to preserve neighborhood character, affordable housing, community resources, and space for artists and industry. The policies we advocate fortify two of the strongest weapons against Global Warming: the preservation and retrofitting of historic buildings.
In Berkeleys vibrant and often contentious political atmosphere, it is worth noting that BNPO members come from all aspects of Berkeleys vivid political spectrum. Thats because we agree that neighborhood preservation is a forward-thinking point of view that helps to achieve Berkeleys green goals.
The 6,000 people who signed petitions against Measure LL support this point of view. Join us all in voting NO on Measure LL.
The Berkeley Neighborhood Preservation Organization includes community leaders and environmenalists, as well as elected officials and representatives of several of Berkeleys oldest and most active neighborhood organizations (see Endorsers).
