Bike lanes of the Lake Merritt Station Area Plan go to the Planning Commission

Wednesday, January 18, 2012 - 6:00pm to 8:00pm

Join us tonight for the Oakland Planning Commission Mtg, Wednesday, January 18, 6:00pm
Join the EBBC team at the Oakland Planning Commission to voice our support for the Lake Merritt BART Station Area Plan and the bike lanes it includes on Oak, Madison, Webster, Franklin, 8th and 9th (east of Harrison), 10th St and 7th St. Support our call for better bike access through the core of Chinatown on 8th and 9th Streets. Let the Planning Commission know that sharrows alone will not provide a safe bikeway through Chinatown. We need your support!

The Planning Commission Staff Report contains a summary of the Plan, as well as the main issues regarding the Plan; the issues address many of the comments we received (from CSG members on the Preferred Plan submitted after CSG 12).

The Lake Merritt Station Area Plan “Draft Preferred Plan” is scheduled to be reviewed at upcoming public hearings. The Draft Preferred Plan contains concepts for land use, open space, affordable housing, transportation and building design strategies, that will become the basis for the Lake Merritt Station Area Plan “Draft Plan” and are the result of an ongoing community planning process. Staff will present an overview of these concepts; feedback will be incorporated into the development of the Draft Plan. All interested parties are welcome to attend and present comments.
