30-day Comment Period on OWDB Draft Local Plan Modifications – Through Monday, March 11, the Oakland Workforce Development Board (OWDB) is asking for public comment on the Draft 2017-2020 Local Plan Biennial Modifications. The Modifications focus on enhancing workforce opportunities for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities; Child Support clients; CalFresh Employment and Training recipients; and English Language Learners, Foreign Born and Refugees clients. The Draft Plan Modifications were informed by insight gained at stakeholder meetings held in November 2018 by OWDB, with the Alameda County Workforce Development Board and EastBay Works Coordinator. At these November meetings, the Alameda County Social Services Agency, Alameda County Department of Child Support Services and the California Department of Rehabilitation each provided an overview of their respective workforce programs that support the target populations. To encourage comment on the Draft Local Plan Modifications, OWDB is hosting a Listening Session to provide a forum for public comment on:
- Wednesday, February 27, 4:00 to 6:00 p.m.
Oakland City Hall, Hearing Room 1
1 Frank H. Ogawa Plaza, Oakland CA 94612
For those who are unable to attend the free, public Listening Session, there are three additional ways to submit your comments:
