In 2002, Oakland voters passed Measure DD, authorizing $198,250,000 in bonds to create the Oakland Trust for Clean Water and Safe Parks, whose purpose is to “improve water quality, provide educational and recreational facilities for children, clean up Lake Merritt, restore Oakland’s creeks, waterfront and Estuary, preserve and acquire open space, renovate parks, provide safe public spaces, and provide matching funds to quality for state and federal funding for these projects.”
