The City of Oakland is currently in the process of creating a plan that identifies opportunities for Transit Oriented Development along the International Boulevard corridor. With the assistance of consultants Raimi + Associates, the City is exploring the potential for creating successful Transit Oriented Development projects along International Boulevard in in the following areas: San Antonio (PDF) (14th to 19th Avenues), Fruitvale (PDF) (23rd to 42nd Avenues), Havenscourt (PDF) (57th to 61st Avenues), Hegenburger (PDF) (71st to 77th Avenues), Elmhurst (PDF) (89th to 101st Avenues), and Elmhurst South (PDF) (102nd Avenue to Durant).
There were two public workshops held about the plan back in September. I didn’t make either of them, but you can get an overview by looking at the slides from the community meeting (PDF) and a presentation about the project to the Community Advisory Committee (PDF).
Anyway, if this interests you, it’s not too late to get involved in the planning process. There are going to be two public workshops about this plan next week. The first one will be held on Monday, November 8th from 6:30 to 8:30 PM at St. Louis Bertrand School (1410 100th Avenue), and will be focused on the portion of the Corridor from 60th to Durant.
The second workshop, focusing on the portion of the Corridor from 14th to 60th, will be held on Tuesday, November 9th from 6:30 to 8:30 PM at St. Anthony’s Church (1535 16th Avenue).
