What is a Truck Management Plan?

The City of Oakland and Port of Oakland invite you to participate in the “Trucks in West Oakland – Community Workshop” series. The City and Port are initiating a West Oakland Truck Management Plan for the development of the former Oakland Army Base lands. The City and Port seek your input to inform and develop the TMP.

Who will be involved?

West Oakland residents and businesses, Port truckers, Mayor’s Office, Councilmember McElhaney, City of Oakland, and the Port of Oakland. We hope that you will participate!

Why are the City and Port doing this now?

The former Oakland Army Base is being redeveloped by the City of Oakland and Port of Oakland into new logistics and warehousing facilities. The West Oakland Truck Management Plan is a requirement of the new development.

Where do we start? 

The City of Oakland and Port of Oakland believe the four major areas to problem solve around are:

1.   “Truck Circulation” means what streets are being used by trucks. It also contemplates where trucks are going to-and-from.

2.   Truck Parking: are trucks parking in spaces that are allowed?

3.   Community Infrastructure: is there proper street signage about parking and truck routes in your neighborhood?

4.   Enforcement: how can we assist truckers to abide by the permitted truck routes and street-parking limits?
