About

Throughout the year of planning, the East Oakland Neighborhoods Initiative will host twenty community meetings throughout six individual neighborhoods:

- Melrose

- Highland/Elmhurst

- Sobrante Park

- Brookfield Village/Columbia Gardens

- Stonehurst

- Coliseum/Rusdale/Lockwood/Havenscourt.

A cohort of resident-leaders will facilitate community outreach, convening, and data collection, and receive capacity-building trainings on planning & land use, environmental justice, and facilitation. Throughout this community engagement process, we will collect residents’ input on goals, issues, concerns, and priorities for their neighborhoods. The East Oakland Neighborhoods Initiative planning process will serve as a model for equitable partnership in building just, healthy, resilient, and prosperous neighborhoods. This work will culminate in a presentation to the community and a report to the State of California summarizing the year’s findings, and outlining goals and recommendations for future development.
