Plan Downtown Oakland
The Plan Downtown Oakland project is an interactive planning process for the creation of a Downtown Specific Plan. The project began in the late summer of 2015, with a community kick-off event. In mid-October, Dover-Kohl led a well attended 9-day charrette, located in a storefront in the heart of downtown. Following the charrette, the draft “big ideas” for the Plan include: Affordability & Equity; Cultural Heritage & Arts; Preservation, Built Environment & Open Spaces; Mobility; Economic Development; and Environmental Considerations. The Specific Plan is expected to be completed during the summer of 2016. An Environmental Impact Report (EIR) for the Downtown Specific Plan is expected to be completed during the summer of 2017.
