- Eliminates redundancies and contradictions between existing ordinances.
- Incorporates changes to street design standards and other transportation related developed and proposed through the Oakland Local Street Network Plan (2014).
- Augments existing regulatory provisions with useful (and in many cases, missing) code provisions from a Model Code Developed for use in small cities.
Public review will be possible through feedback on this site, to Mayor Keehley (firstname.lastname@example.org), Lead Staff Jacob Callister (email@example.com), and at public meetings, including a public Open House in the Fall.
