What an exciting week of engagement!
Beyond the nearly 300 Oakland residents, workers and business owners who attended last Monday’s workshop for Plan Downtown Oakland, hundreds more have shared ideas, concerns and feedback at the ongoing open house at 1544 Broadway. The ideas you’ve shared address everything from making short-term improvements to supporting affordable housing to reconnecting and uniting neighborhoods over the next few decades.
The project team has listened and sketched out draft concepts to help the community visualize what these ideas will look like on the ground. It is early in the planning process, but take this opportunity to come see these visions and suggestions take shape as specific draft recommendations and provide feedback.

Enjoy refreshments and special performances by local artists and students at this informal open house.
Following the Mayor’s State of the City address, the team will present the initial images and ideas informed by public input gathered since the project began.
Your input on these ideas is critical. We want to know if we’ve heard you correctly, if we’ve missed anything and whether we’re headed in the right direction.
Please join us in this conversation, and invite your friends, neighbors and colleagues.
