Harnessing growth to support long-time residents

Located near the epicenter of the tech boom, Oakland — a city rooted in blue-collar values and civic action — has experienced unprecedented growth in a relatively short time. While this presents a chance to advance much needed programming and infrastructure, it also raises concerns about protecting the quality of life of longtime residents who make up the very fabric of the city.
