Rachal at PlanDowntown WorkshopRecap of the October 19 Opening Work Session

A full house of interested downtown residents, businesses, planners and protestors filled the room to discuss how to redesign downtown Oakland. Hot topic issues included affordable housing, cultural preservation, promotion of local artists, and safer walking and bicycling.

Recap of the September 3 Kick Off Event

Oakland has kicked off its Downtown Specific Plan process, and over the next year, we have a golden opportunity to get protected bike lanes designed and approved for Broadway and 14th St, two priority bikeways. Our 14th St Bikeway Campaign has been stalled due to lack of staff resources, and the Downtown Specific Plan is just the opportunity to jump start things.

You can help by marking your calendars for a series of design charrettes and workshops starting October 19, 2015. For ten days, Oakland wants to hear your ideas for reimagining Downtown Oakland. What changes would you like?
