The City of Oakland has asked Alameda County to take action and express their intent to opt in to the Enhanced Infrastructure Financing District (EIFD) over the Waterfront Ballpark District at Howard Terminal. This will provide critical funding for the project to support affordable housing, parks, and other public benefits—all paid for by revenues generated by the project.
A project of this magnitude generates a lot of interest and discussion by various stakeholders, and it is essential to inform subsequent action with accurate information.
The Alameda County Board of Supervisors will hold a regular meeting on October 26th, and their requested participation in the Enhanced Infrastructure Financing District for the proposed Oakland Waterfront Ballpark District at Howard Terminal EIFD is to be on the agenda.
