The Commission recognized and thanked outgoing Bike East Bay Advocacy Director Dave Campbell for his work in this role promoting better bicycling in Oakland. Dave’s contributions to bicycling and safe streets advocacy in the East Bay over the years are incalculable, but here are just a few:
Chair Schader (firstname.lastname@example.org) led the commission in a discussion of recent fatal and other high-profile traffic crashes in Oakland involving bicyclists and pedestrians.
OakDOT’s Safe Streets Division Manager Megan Wier (email@example.com), Supervising Transportation Engineer Joe Wang (JWang@oaklandca.gov), and Transportation Engineers Mandana Ashti (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Brian Sukkar (email@example.com) provided an overview of OakDOT’s Rapid Response to fatal traffic crashes. Oakland Police Department’s Lieutenant Fleming and Sergeant Bellusa also shared information regarding OPD’s crash investigations, which inform OakDOT rapid responses. OakDOT staff also shared two case studies of rapid responses to recent crashes involving people walking and biking.
OakDOT Senior Transportation Planner, Audrey Harris (firstname.lastname@example.org), provided an overview of the TOWN projects, a suite of infrastructure improvements that will provide safer, more sustainable and more equitable access between Downtown, Chinatown, and West Oakland and the waterfront while protecting and enhancing goods movement in and out of the nearby Port of Oakland. The TOWN projects have also been designed to facilitate access to and from the proposed Waterfront Ballpark District at Howard Terminal which if approved, would deliver an urban infill project that proposes to build a new ballpark, up to 3,000 new housing units, 1.7 million square feet of commercial space, a 400-room hotel, a 3,500-seat performance venue, and 18 acres of open space, including an extension to the Bay Trail.
