Take the Downtown Accessibility Survey

Older adults and people with disabilities, please take a few minutes to respond to a survey about the challenges to accessing opportunities downtown!



This is the sixth specific plan undertaken in Oakland in recent years, and the first ever for downtown. Creating a specific plan for this remaining area will help weave together the existing specific plans in the surrounding areas (shown in the map at right).

All specific plans involve significant participation from the public and other governmental agencies. Emerging themes include:

  • Affordability & opportunity
  • Social and racial equity
  • Cultural heritage & arts
  • Preservation & urbanism
  • Inclusive public realm
  • Connectivity & mobility

We will be holding a series of public meetings in conjunction with the release of the Plan Options Memo in July 2018. The Plan Options Memo will help Oakland make decisions about strategies to include in the draft plan.
