The Oakland 2025 Master Plan is now available in full!
Oakland 2025 is the culmination of a year-long community engagement process that included public design workshops, neighborhood dialogue sessions, community”walk-shops,” and stakeholder interviews. The strategies fit into five distinct yet interrelated areas:
Housing: Provide innovative, sustainable housing choices for diverse new generations of residents who choose to live where they work. Do this through rehab, conservation & innovative new housing choices and financing incentives
Transportation: Develop a multimodal transportation network that incorporates “complete streets” principles (accessibility and safety for pedestrians, cyclists, automobiles and transit) and connects all parts of the neighborhood
Business and Development: Maintain local, unique and diverse businesses that grow from Oakland’s innovation economy and support the neighborhood health
Open Space and Art: Weave green infrastructure (trails, parks and hillsides) and public art into all economic development initiatives
Community Building: Reinforce neighborhood identity and increase social capital through community consensus, social networks, stewardship, gathering places, and increased connectivity.
