About Economic Development Strategy

Meet the Team

The purpose of the Economic Development Strategy is to set both immediate and long-term goals and priorities to grow Oakland's economy while keeping Oakland a unique, special place to live and do business. Our goal is to make Oakland an easy, efficient, and prosperous place to do business, and to reduce racial disparities and help all Oaklanders achieve economic security.

The Strategy establishes specific, measurable targets to track and evaluate the success of our efforts.

On Tuesday, November 28, 2017, the Oakland City Council adopted the Economic Development Strategy.
