Oakland’s streets, all 2,300 lane miles of them, are critical to the life of the city. In recent years, we’ve seen how streets not only ensure the movement of people and goods, but also build much-needed cultural vibrancy—via farmers’ markets, First Friday events, and even food truck gatherings.
How can the concept of a shared street enrich our city? Is it possible for infrastructure to improve community through commerce and connections?
On Thursday, December 12th, The American Institute of Architects, East Bay hosts an informal discussion about the aspects that make shared streets successful. The public is encouraged to participate in the discussion, which will be followed by a wine and cheese reception.
Speakers include: Jim Daisa, P.E., Kimley-Horn & Associates, Inc. and Steve Weinberger, W-Trans
