The City of Oakland is pleased to release a Request-for-Proposals (RFP) from qualified consultants to create Objective Design Standards and Streamlined Project Review processes.
We invite all qualified firms to submit a proposal for this exciting project!
This is an opportunity to create objective design standards and shape a streamlined process of approvals for much-needed affordable housing. This initiative also seeks to create a fast track for approvals of a wide variety of other high-quality residential, mixed-use, and commercial projects in Oakland. By limiting discretionary design review to largest and most complex projects and expediting approvals for a significant share of other proposals, this initiative will facilitate housing production across all building types and income levels with an emphasis on affordable housing.
