Document Description
The City of Oakland’s Bureau of Planning prepared a Draft EIR and this Response to Comments / Final EIR for the Phase I Oakland 2045 General Plan Update (“Project”). The Project includes the Housing Element Implementation (HEI) component including adoption of Planning Code, Zoning Map, and General Plan text and map amendments implementing its 2023-2031 Housing Element. The HEI Planning Code amendments include specific proposals to incentivize the construction of affordable housing and to reduce and eliminate constraints that could limit the City’s ability to reach its housing goals. The Project will 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.
