On the agenda:

  • Public Hearing: Oak Knoll Mixed use Community Plan Project —Heather Klein with the Bureau of Planning will take comments on the transportation-related bicycle and pedestrian safety aspects of the Project at 8750 Mountain Blvd. Bounded by Keller Avenue and Mountain Boulevard. The master plan proposal to redevelop the former Oak Knoll Naval Medical Center (NMCO) site includes construction of 935 residential units, a commercial “Village Center,” relocation of the historic Club Knoll building for commercial uses and community space, and approximately 83 acres of open space, creek restoration, trails, paths and bicycle routes.

  • Proposed Implementation of Senate Bill 743: CEQA (30 minutes) Sarah Fine, Senior Transportation Planner, will present the City’s proposed action to eliminate automobile delay from City of Oakland CEQA Thresholds, implementing the directive from Senate Bill 743 and applying proposed guidance from the Governor’s Office of Planning & Research (www.opr.ca.gov/docs/Revised_VMT_CEQA_Guidelines_Proposal_January_20_2016.pdf). This action was summarized in the poster presentation during the BPAC’s August 18, 2016 meeting, and identified as part of a broader effort, the Modernizing Transportation Impact Review (TIR) project, which was presented in overview at the April 21, 2016 meeting of the BPAC. The broad goals of the TIR project are to align the City of Oakland’s CEQA Thresholds with state law (Senate Bill 743, Steinberg), increase the efficiency and predictability of development application review, and ensure that new development contributes appropriately to a multimodal urban transportation network.
