The meeting for the community to address concerns about Oakland Gateway Ventures' proposals for the Oakland Area including the properties in the 3400 block of Bates St ("the porches") will be Tuesday May 2 at 6pm at the Oakland Career Center at 294 Semple St. 
 
  That would normally coincide with the monthly SONG meeting, but given the importance of that meeting, we have decided to cancel the SONG meeting.
