Local Legislation Activity

According to the posted agenda found at City of Oakland Legislative Calendar, the Tuesday, December 8th, 2009 Agenda, for the Special Concurrent Meeting of the Oakland Redevelopment Agency/City Council is not another ho hum yawner of a meeting. This one could easily go beyond the 10:30 pm time.

Among the items the Council will be voting on with a direct impact on the Prescott Oakland Point Neighborhood include the 7th Street Streetscape Phase 1 Project put on the agenda as Supplemental Item S-10.11-CC, titled “West Oakland Transit Village - Gallagher & Burk, Inc.” which awards a construction contract to Gallagher & Burk, Inc. Not To Exceed Three Million Two Hundred Seventeen Thousand Four Hundred Twenty Six Dollars ($3,217,426.00) from the West Oakland Redevelopment Project ($650,000.00) Redevelopment Agency Funds ($650,000.00), and American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA) Grant Funds ($1,300,000.00).

At the December 1, 2009 Public Works Committee, members (Brooks, Kaplan, Kernighan, Nadel) approved recommendations and directed staff to submit a report on: 1) the bus shelter’s Real-Time display options (i.e. does the bus shelter have electricity etc.; 2) how to handle bike parking in the West Oakland Transit Village Streetscape Improvement Project area; and 3) return to a future committee meeting with a report on the city-wide bike parking.
