Update: Downtown Specific Plan

The Conduit received the following communication from the City of Oakland: 

Next Wednesday, the Plan Downtown Oakland team will go before the Planning Commission with an informational report on the status of the Downtown Oakland Specific Plan, specifically related to the recently approved contract enhancements and next steps. The contract enhancements include the preparation of a racial equity impact assessment, additional community engagement, additional analysis to support recommendations in the plan, and a higher level of environmental clearance from the environmental impact report. The team is gearing up for additional community engagement beginning this summer and will be in touch (and post updates to the website), regarding exact dates for public meetings, etc.

The director’s report for the Planning Commission meeting will be available by Wednesday afternoon on the Plan Downtown Oakland website: www.oaklandnet.com/plandowntownoakland (see “meetings” section).
