Community Engagement
What is a Truck Management Plan?
The City and Port initiated a West Oakland Truck Management Plan for the development of the former Oakland Army Base lands to reduce problems with truck circulation and truck parking in West Oakland and the surrounding area. Beginning in October 2017, the City and Port began a public participation process to obtain input from stakeholders and West Oakland community to inform and develop the TMP. This was done in part through a series of public meetings: “Trucks in West Oakland – Community Workshop” series.
Workshop 1: “Learning” on 10/11/2017
Workshop 2: “Observing and Exploring” on 12/2/2017
Workshop 3: “Sharing” on 4/07/2018
Workshop 4: “Co-Creating” on 7/18/18
Workshop 5: “Joining Together” on 11/29/18
Who has been involved?
West Oakland residents and businesses, Port truckers, Mayor’s Office, Councilmember McElhaney, City of Oakland, and the Port of Oakland.
Why did the City and the Port Complete the TMP 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.
What does the TMP include?
The TMP includes:
  • Analysis of where trucks drive and park in the West Oakland area.
  • “Traffic-calming” ideas to help trucks stay on designated truck routes.
  • Better signs so that truck routes and non-truck routes are clearly seen.
  • Outreach and better communication with truck drivers about where they can and cannot drive in West Oakland.
