Planning for Love Our Neighborhood Day Open Streets

Thursday, April 9, 2015 - 6:00pm to 8:00pm The Compound Gallery, 1167 - 65th Street, Oakland

 

Please join your friends and neighbors for an OPEN COMMUNITY MEETING about this event, what it’s all about, and how you can participate on Thursday, April 9, at 6 p.m. at The Compound Gallery, 1167 - 65th Street, Oakland.

Dear Neighbor:
For the second year, our Golden Gate/Southwest Berkeley neighborhood hosts and invites you to participate in the open streets event, Love Our Neighborhood Day, on Saturday, May 30th.

For those who missed last year’s event, this open street event is a block party for people to experience our neighborhood in a whole new way. San Pablo Avenue will be closed to traffic and car-free from Ashby to Stanford, about a mile-long stretch, so that people can walk, bike, skate, dance, and play in the open street, your street. You won’t want to miss this amazing day. We expect more than 5,000 people to attend the event this year.

As residents, business owners, and non-profit/community organizations along the route, you have the opportunity to interact with and reach thousands of event attendees. Unlike traditional street fairs, there is no street-vending allowed. Instead, Love Our Neighborhood Day is all about showcasing YOU, the Golden Gate and Southwest Berkeley neighborhood organizations, business, and residents.

Let us know if and how you’d like to participate.

Important Information for You:

  • The street will close at 9:00 a.m. on Saturday, May 30th (5/30). No cars may be parked on San

    Pablo at that time. The street will re-open to vehicles and parking at approximately 5:00 p.m.

  • Is your business going to be open on Saturday, May 30th? Great! Be prepared for increased foot

    traffic, and do let your regular customers know that busses will be detoured and they will need to park away from San Pablo, as the street will be closed.

  • This is your chance to show off your business by giving incentives for new potential customers. Love Our Neighborhood Day 2015: OpenStreetsDirector@gmail.com or 510-550-4802
