Our Upcoming Events
Office of Neighborhood Investment
On June 29, 2011 Governor Jerry Brown signed legislation eliminating redevelopment agencies (RDAs) and directing the resolution of their activities while simultaneously creating an alternative voluntary redevelopment program. These bills, titled ABx1 26 and ABx1 27 respectively were sent to the State’s highest court for further consideration.
On December 29, 2011, the California Supreme Court delivered its decision in the California Redevelopment Association v. Matosantos case, finding AB1x26 constitutional and AB1x 27 unconstitutional.
The Court’s decision effectively dissolved all RDAs, as of February 1, 2012, under the constitutional Dissolution Act. Further no RDA will have the opportunity to opt into continued existence under the unconstitutional Alternative Redevelopment Program Act.
As of February 1, 2012, the City of Oakland Redevelopment Agency ceased to exist. The Redevelopment Successor Agency has been created to complete the activities of the former Redevelopment Agency.
The Redevelopment Successor Agency is housed within the Office of Neigborhood Investment.
Oakland Army Base
The Oakland Army Base is poised to become the gateway to Oakland and the East Bay when the new eastern span of the Bay Bridge is completed. The Oakland Army Base Project Area will benefit the community in many ways; through job creation, expanded business opportunities and services, improvements to the visual environment, increased public access to and along the Oakland waterfront, improved efficiency of Port operations and environmental sustainability.
On July 3, 2012, the Oakland City Council approved a master plan for a development project on approximately 130 acres of the former Oakland Army Base. The mixed-use project will include commercial, maritime, rail, and open space uses. The City Council also authorized the City Administrator to negotiate and execute a Lease Disposition and Development Agreement (LDDA) with Prologis CCIG Oakland Global for the development of the project. The LDDA, which was executed October 23, 2012, spells out the financial terms, the scope of development, and other considerations for developing the Army Base.

Community & Economic Development Agency (CEDA) Dissolved Functions previously performed by CEDA staff are either no longer completed by the City, or decentralized to one of four new offices:
- The Office of Neighborhood Investment will house the Real Estate Division, the Oakland Army Base Project and the Redevelopment Successor Agency which is charged with transitioning qualifying former Redevelopment Agency projects, as outlined in the Enforceable Obligation Payment Schedule (EOPS).
- The Office of Economic & Workforce Development was created to ensure that the City’s economic development priority has adequate resources and is focused on business relations, retention, attraction, and development. This newly formed office will be positioned to grow as legislative activity emerges that supports economic development in light of the dissolution of redevelopment.
- The Office of Planning, Building & Neighborhood Preservation, will house the Planning Division and the Building Services Division, which better reflects the mission and goals of these services.
- The Office of Housing & Community Development, converted from CEDA Housing Services, will provide primary staff support for Housing Successor Agency activities.
