Capital Improvement Projects
Capital projects are designed to upgrade and improve the City’s infrastructure including building facilities, parks/open space, streets, sidewalks and sewers.
Measure DD is a $198.25 million bond measure for better parks and cleaner water. Funded projects include parks, trails, bridges, a recreation center, historic building renovations, land acquisition and creek restoration.
Measure B provides a one-half-cent sales tax to improve transportation in Alameda County.
Creeks, Watershed & Stormwater
Healthy watersheds are a vital component of a healthy urban environment and Oakland's watershed of more than 15 main creeks, 30 tributaries, Lake Merritt and the Estuary make it a unique City resource.
With over 2,300 lane miles of streets and 1,120 miles of sidewalk (the distance from Oakland to El Paso, Texas!), Oakland faces a big challenge in maintaining this essential element of City infrastructure. Several programs and projects working together keep Oakland streets and sidewalks safe, accessible and efficient as possible by rehabilitating streets, repairing sidewalks and improving streetscapes. See the Oakland Streets Fact Sheet for more information.
