Following the Mayor’s State of the City Address on October 28th, the Downtown Specific Plan Team led by Dover/Kohl presented the results of the previous week’s public Charrette. Starting with the public meeting on Monday, rethinking I-980 was a popular topic of conversation with the community. Connect Oakland participated in the Charrette throughout the week and are happy to see that rethinking the I-980 corridor is a priority of the community and the City and will be part of the Downtown Plan.
During the Charrette, the Dover/Kohl team took the Multiway Multi-modal boulevard and integrated it into the draft proposals for the Downtown Plan.
