Transit Action Strategy

Oakland Department of Transportation and AC Transit have partnered to strategize transit improvements across the Town

Transportation + Land Use

The first section of Oakland's 2030 Equitable Climate Action Plan (ECAP) is Transportation + Land Use (TLU). Transportation accounts for two thirds of Oakland’s local greenhouse gas emissions. The TLU Actions were developed with a vision that integrated land use and access to safe, reliable, low-cost, high-quality mobility options for every Oaklander will enable an equitable transition away from cars.

Tree Services

The City of Oakland will only prune trees in hazardous or emergency situations. In 2008, nearly half of the Tree Services unit was eliminated due to lack of funding. The tree planting, watering, pruning and pollarding services were all eliminated.

Triangle Incident Response

Crisis responders from the DVP and violence interrupters from DVP-funded organizations respond within one hour of activation to shootings in Oakland that are related to network conflicts or gender-based violence (GBV). This process is known as the Triangle Incident Response, and it is initiated when the DVP receives a notification of a shooting from the Oakland Police Department. The DVP maintains a staff of three individuals who respond to incidents related to network conflicts and three individuals who respond to incidents related to GBV. These staff are assigned to respond on a rotating schedule by day of the week, with one network responder and one GBV responder on call at all times. Violence interrupters employed by DVP-funded organizations are similarly assigned to respond based on days of the week and regions of Oakland.

Truck Management Plan

The West Oakland Truck Management Plan (TMP) is an action-based plan designed to reduce the effects of transport trucks on local streets in West Oakland. The TMP was approved by the City and the Port in April 2019. When the TMP is implemented, the West Oakland community should experience fewer trucks driving or parking where they should not be, improved safety for people walking, biking, and driving in West Oakland, and an overall improvement in the quality of life for people living and working in West Oakland.

Truck Management Plan Progress

Implementation of the Truck Management Plan (TMP) started in July 2019. Below is a summary of OakDOT's work on the TMP Strategies.

Truck Parking Reporting: Benchmark Year 2017

The truck parking regulations were updated in April 2022. Evaluating truck parking ticket data is one way to gauge effectiveness of truck parking regulations. As fewer trucks park illegally, fewer tickets will be issued.

Urban Agriculture and Community Gardens

Urban farming, the small-scale cultivation of crops, has become increasingly popular throughout Oakland and the United States. To help support this vital movement and encourage local food production, the City of Oakland recently updated its zoning regulations related to urban agriculture. Read on for more about what is permitted "outright" for Oakland residents, and what types of activities require permits in different zones. Profiles of several local urban farming projects are also showcased below.

Use of Force (UOF) Levels

The Oakland Police Department (OPD) defines Use of Force (UOF) as any physical or mechanical intervention used by a member or employee to defend, control, overpower, restrain or overcome the resistance of an individual. OPD takes UOF seriously and has employed several strategies to reduce its occurrence (see definitions, strategies, and links to UOF levels below).

Use of Force Ad Hoc Committee

Oakland had an opportunity to reimagine policing and craft a policy that addresses the needs of our communities, provides clear guidelines for police engagement and prioritizes and respects the sanctity of life.
