The City of Oakland’s Bureau of Planning is preparing an Environmental Impact Report (“EIR”) for Phase I of the Oakland 2045 General Plan Update (“Project”), which includes updates of the Housing Element and Safety Element, preparation of a new Environmental Justice Element, and conforming changes to the City’s Planning Code, Zoning Map, and General Plan Map Amendments. The Project will establish Housing Element programs, policies, and actions to meet existing and projected housing needs at all income levels of the City of Oakland; provide evidence of the City’s ability to accommodate its Regional Housing Needs Allocation (RHNA) for the 2023-2031 period; identify rezoning and General Plan amendments needed to meet the City’s housing goals; amend the City of Oakland’s existing Safety Element to update and as necessary create policies, programs, and actions that protect Oaklanders from safety hazards, including those resulting from climate change; and adopt an Environmental Justice Element to address the unique and compounded health risks, including but not limited to those resulting from poor air quality, lack of public facilities, safe and sanitary homes, and limited food access, in communities most impacted by poor health outcomes and racial segregation.
