The mayors of Oakland & San Francisco have challenged each other to a Battle for the Bay on Creek to Bay Day, Sept. 21.
Titled “Belonging in Oakland: A Cultural Development Plan,” the document provides a roadmap to support and lift up the role of culture in building a just and equitable city – so that every Oaklander in every neighborhood has access to cultural amenities.

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.
