Oakland Lake Merritt Station Area Plan Streetscape Design Open House

From EBBC:

Please join us at the City of Oakland’s OPEN HOUSE to learn about the plans for street and open space improvements, and guidelines for new development in the area within half a mile radius from the Lake Merritt BART Station. The draft proposals, along with identification of funding and implementation mechanisms are based on an ongoing community process, in collaboration with BART and Peralta Community College District, to create a Station Area Plan that will help guide how this area develops into the future.

*The event will begin with a presentation. Various staffed information stations will also illustrate the Draft Plan proposals. Light refreshments will be served.

Interpreters will be available during the presentation and materials will be available in English, Chinese and Vietnamese.
