Community Stakeholder Mtg for Lake Merritt Station Area Plan

From EBBC:

Oakland City Staff will be presenting the Draft Preferred Plan in a series of public hearings, highlighting points of consensus and responding to key outstanding issues. The Draft Preferred Plan begins to articulate land use and open space policies; affordable housing strategies; circulation and streetscape plans; and building height and massing proposals. These initial concepts will be refined and adjusted to form the basis for more specific policies, projects and regulations that will be included in the Lake Merritt Station Area Plan. The Lake Merritt Station Area Plan will build on the area’s existing vibrancy and potential catalyst development projects, to establish a coordinated vision for new development, transportation and open space improvements over the next 25 years.

The Draft Preferred Plan may be viewed on the project website (under the “Reports” section at www.business2oakland.com/lakemerrittsap), at the offices of the City of Oakland Strategic Planning Division (250 Frank H. Ogawa Plaza, Suite 3315), the Oakland Asian Cultural Center (388 9th Street) and at the Lincoln Square Recreation Center (250 10th Street).
