Oakland Streets = Vibrant Public Spaces, using your ideas

“Oakland Department of Transportation is seeking input on transforming Oakland’s largest asset—our streets—into vibrant public spaces.  A new program would integrate art into everyday infrastructure through projects like creative crosswalks and intersection painting. Additionally, the program would enable new public spaces such as plazas and parklets. On May 26th, [the City] released a Request for Community interest to learn where community members may want to these new types of treatments. Staff will use the information …received from the Request to develop a formal program.”  Here’s their website.

Submit your ideas! Make Oakland more vibrant and beautiful!
