Oakland General Plan Update
The General Plan Update is a once-in-a-generation opportunity for Oaklanders to work together on creating an equitable blueprint for the future of the City. A key component of the General Plan Update’s overall Public Engagement Program will be to provide targeted engagement to geographies and communities that experience socio-economic, environmental, and racial disparities to ensure that their voices, which have often been under-represented in planning and policy-making processes, are included and engaged.
