Streetscape Gap Closure Community Meeting
Reunión Comunitaria – On Wednesday, May 18, 2016, a second community meeting will be held for discussion about the proposed design improvements to the Fruitvale Streetscape. The City of Oakland is working to improve the safety and experience for all modes of travel on Fruitvale Avenue from Alameda Avenue to East 12th Street.
The Fruitvale Alive! Gap Closure Streetscape Project builds on past planning efforts for the area, including the Central Estuary Area Plan and the Fruitvale Alive Community Transportation Plan. The design goals are to increase the corridor's utility for bike and pedestrian access while simultaneously improving traffic operations and safety. Key components include improved and/or widened sidewalks, underpass improvements and artwork, bike facility upgrades, high visibility crosswalks, traffic striping and lane modifications, bulb-outs, corner radius reductions, improved pavement, landscaping, pedestrian lighting, traffic and pedestrian signal and timing upgrades, and wayfinding signs.
The Community Meeting will be held from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. at the Fruitvale‒San Antonio Senior Center, 3301 East 12th Street, Suite 201. ¡Todos son bienvenidos! All are welcome to attend! For more information, please contact Project Manager Nick Cartagena at email@example.com or (510) 238-2139. Please also visit the project webpage at www.oaklandnet.com/fruitvalealive.

Oakland Parks & Landscaping Working to Make a Sustainable Difference
Please enjoy this highlighted APWA article, "Lawn Conversions" written by Park Supervisor Clinton Pugh. It details what Oakland Public Works staff are doing to conserve water, reduce labor costs and resources. Park staff will be doing projects similar to this citywide – made possible by a water conservation program added to this year’s budget.
Reward Program for Reporting Illegal Dumping
The City has launched a program that provides rewards to witnesses who help stop people illegally dumping in Oakland neighborhoods. With the Reward for Reporting Illegal Dumping Program, witnesses who report illegal dumping can receive up to half of all penalties collected in successful enforcement actions based on the witness’s reports.
This sends a strong message that Oakland will not tolerate illegal dumping in our neighborhoods and City streets. Residents will notice a series of bus shelter ads like the image on the right, encouraging the public to help identify and put a stop to perpetrators' illegal behavior.

Recycling every day, at home, at work and at play, is an easy and rewarding practice. By adopting recycling and waste reduction habits, you can reduce pollution and fight climate change. Help Oakland recycle more by making a habit of recycling paper, cardboard, cans and bottles and batteries, and by eliminating wasteful habits. The Recycling Program oversees garbage and recycling services provided by Waste Management of Alameda County and California Waste Solutions and works to ensure that recycling is widely available.
