The City of Oakland has been working to develop a specific plan for Downtown Oakland for the last several years and is now seeking feedback on proposed zoning amendments for the Downtown Oakland Specific Plan. On August 23rd, the Oakland Metropolitan Chamber of Commerce hosts a discussion chaired by Board Member Edward McFarlan, of JRDV Urban International.
The Downtown Oakland Specific Plan (DOSP) has been developed in multiple publicly reviewed iterations over the past several years, including having been revised in response to the public comments received in late 2019 and to address COVID-19 recovery. The DOSP will be brought to City Council for adoption later this year. This Plan provides policy guidance on development, linking land use, transportation, economic development, housing, public spaces, cultural belonging, and social equity in Downtown Oakland.
The DOSP’s Zoning Amendments include changes to both the Zoning Map and Planning Code. These are the first step toward implementing the Plan’s goals and policies. This page provides information about the Draft Zoning Amendments, opportunities to learn more, and ways to share your feedback.
