Lowell/Golden Gate/Gaskill Redevelopment Expansion
* Due to the dissolution of the redevelopment agency on February 1, 2012, this project will not move forward.
Redevelopment staff is in the process of analyzing an expansion of the existing Broadway/MacArthur/San Pablo Redevelopment Project Area in North Oakland to include the adjacent Lowell/Golden Gate/Gaskill neighborhoods within the Project Area.
For more information on the Broadway/MacArthur/San Pablo Redevelopment Project Area visit the Project Area web page.
Community members from the neighborhood adjacent to the San Pablo sub-area of the existing Broadway/MacArthur/San Pablo Redevelopment Area requested that the Redevelopment Agency explore extending the boundaries of the Broadway/MacArthur/San Pablo Redevelopment Project Area to include the geographic area currently defined as Police Beat 10X, which includes the Lowell Street/Golden Gate/Gaskill neighborhoods.
Neighbors circulated a petition to show community support for expanding the existing Redevelopment Project Area to include the adjacent neighborhoods. The petition was signed by over 500 residents in an area with approximately 1,300 parcels. In response to the petition, Redevelopment staff held two community meetings in the neighborhood in October 2009 and February 2010 explaining what it means to be a redevelopment project area and describing the adoption process. At the February meeting, the participants voted to move ahead with adopting the survey area and starting the redevelopment adoption process.
