In December, Councilmember Fife introduced legislation to establish a 3-year pilot program that allows schools, businesses, and community centers that serve vulnerable populations to apply for temporary encroachment permits to install removable traffic safety treatments and create traffic calming zones in the city’s streets.
In order to develop this pilot so it truly serves Oaklanders, there will be two public community meetings to gather information from residents and community based organizations to assess their interest and ability to participate in the pilot program.
Oaklanders can attend either the East Oakland or West Oakland meeting. The East Oakland community meeting will be co-sponsored with Councilmembers Treva Reid and Kevin Jenkins.
