International Boulevard T.O.D. Plan receives APA Award

International Boulevard with street improvements and mixed-use infill development

The American Planning Association has recognized the City of Oakland's  International Boulevard Transit-Oriented Development Plan with two awards.  The Grassroots award reflects the interactive, community-based process that informed the Plan, which has subsequently been instrumental in the City's receiving a $1,000,000 Sustainable Communities grant funded by Proposition 84 revenues. The Plan was the result of the successful collaboration of planning lead Raimi + Associates, urban design lead Sargent Town Planning, public engagement lead Transform, the City of Oakland, and the residents of the neighborhoods all along this six mile stretch of International Boulevard.
