In late July and early August, prior to the official start of the Oakland Plan process in October, City Planning is working with partner public agencies and non-profit to provide an education series focusing on four key topics that will be part of the planning process: Mobility (“Move”), Environment (“Restore”), Energy (“Energize”), and Land Use (“Thrive”). The goal is to provide residents, employees, students, and other stakeholders the chance to learn about these topics from non-profit and public agency experts and have a chance to talk about them without the tension of it being in the middle of a planning process.
We ask that you spread the word about this opportunity to your constituencies so we can get a good turnout at each meeting. Our hope is to have people unfamiliar with the topics come and learn about them.
What: Presentations followed by time for questions and discussions.
When: One session each week starting July 25th. Each meeting will be from 6-8 p.m. and focus on a single topic.
Who: Non-profits and public agency experts.
Where: Each event will be at a different location in Oakland. See the flyer for details.
What else: Free items, dinners, and informational materials will be available at each meeting.
The event flyer is attached both as a PDF and JPEG.
We’re very excited about this series and hope you are too. We greatly appreciate the support of OBID, OPDC, Residence Inn, and the Pittsburgh Innovation District for being our gracious hosts and to Phipps, BikePGH, Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy, and the Green Building Alliance for being our non-profit partners in these educational events.
The August 6th “Restore” session will now be in the Schenley Visitors Center (101 Panther Hollow Rd), NOT the Schenley Plaza Tent.
