Mayor Jean Quan and Council Member Jane Brunner
will host a Town Hall meeting with residents of District 1 (North Oakland) on

to more closely connect City services with neighborhood needs.
With the opening of the 140,000-square-foot Target store on the Oakland-Emeryville border, the retailer brings job opportunities and an additional shopping option for Oakland residents and much-needed revenue for the City of Oakland. To assist Target, the City of Oakland assembled a multi-agency team to work in partnership with the retailer’s construction and development team in order to open the store on budget and ahead of schedule.
