Launched in April 2017, the citywide plan process included a research and discovery phase as well as a robust community engagement phase with a series of 14 meetings throughout Oakland, a survey of Oakland residents and the creation of a Cultural Asset map. The completed plan was adopted by Oakland City Council in July 2018.
