It’s happening!

"We dig you."

We dig you, and can't wait to meet you all.

And with less than 24 hours until our soft opening it won't be long now.

So we want to take a moment to thank everyone. There are far too many to list here, but huge gratitude goes out to everyone who has helped us in building this new venture at the @castrovalleymarketplace. Thank you to all who have supported, guided, encouraged, challenged, inspired, and shown up for us.

And you.

We want to thank and welcome everyone who has anxiously awaited our arrival, and who will be new to our company. Even if we have yet to meet, we made this thing for you.

Though the pandemic has tempered so much about this opening; we won’t have a celebration for a while, some stock is still in short supply, we need to limit customer counts, and keep our distance, and more. Despite that, it is still a time to welcome and celebrate all the individuals who make up our newest community.

We dig you.

New art on the Marketplace, you say?

For the renowned mosaic artist, Rita Soyfertis, her pieces represent a silent conversation between a space and those who pass through. As we've adjusted to new routines, replacing the tiles of our schedules into new places, Rita thoughtfully arranges colorful tiles into a story created just for our community.

Read more about how she designed these pieces, where her inspiration comes from, and how she's looking at this time through an artist lens here: https://bit.ly/2YoOQe1

ALAMEDA COUNTY TEMPORARY COMMERCIAL MORATORIUM: The Moratorium covers all commercial tenants/properties in the unincorpo...
04/30/2020

ALAMEDA COUNTY TEMPORARY COMMERCIAL MORATORIUM:

The Moratorium covers all commercial tenants/properties in the unincorporated area. It says that landlords may not evict commercial tenants for not paying rent while the Moratorium is in effect.

It does NOT remove a tenant’s obligation to ultimately pay rent that is due. And it doesn’t disrupt any voluntary payment agreements that landlords and tenants have made or will make.

There are 3 key provisions in the Commercial Eviction Moratorium:

1.Expiration Date: The Moratorium will expire on May 31st, unless the Governor extends the State’s emergency order. In that case, the Moratorium will expire 90 days from the date the Board adopted the ordinance (4/21/2020).

2.Noticing Requirements: If a tenant receives a “Notice of Termination” from a landlord, the tenant must notify the landlord that they have experienced a “Qualifying Loss” and must provide documentation (described below) within 15 business days after the rent is due. That documentation is supporting claims of inability to pay due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Examples of documentation include: a statement signed under penalty of perjury that the inability to pay is due to a Covered Reason for Delayed Payment as defined in the Moratorium; documents showing reduced business income; and correspondence by a business owner citing COVID-19 as a basis for reduced business hours or business closure.

Any financial information provided to the landlord shall be held in confidence, and only used for evaluating a tenant’s claim.

3. Repayment Period: Tenants have 90 days after the date the Moratorium expires to pay rent that has not been paid. Also, landlords cannot charge late fees or assess other penalties for unpaid rent.
