The City of Oakland's Draft Downtown Oakland Specific Plan and Environmental Impact Report are in comment period, which ends November 8th. Our District's development future is envisioned in this document. Share your feedback on our draft comments, or submit your own comments to the project team here.
We appreciate having 20 new street trees beautifying and greening the District. 3rd Street, 4th Street and MLK are now lined with Crepe Myrtle and Ginko trees.
Thanks for a great volunteer day, American Forests and leadership by Urban Releaf.
