Founder and Board Chair Opie Bellas will brief the commission on the FODP history of advocacy for ADA Accessibility, their recent Accessibility Report for Dimond Park and their current goal and petition to have funding included in the 2022-2024 City Budget for two priorities:
They would like a letter of support from MCPD on their budget request.
Bivett Brackett, Lime Senior Manager of Government Relations, to present and get feedback on their current adaptive service, the Lime Able Program, and their Lime Access program. Lime Access provides discounted fares to qualifying riders in the United States, and access to Lime scooters for people without smartphones or credit cards. To qualify, an individual must demonstrate participation in an eligible local, state, or federal public benefits program.
Nicole Ferrara from OakDOT will introduce AB 2336 and ask for MCPD support of this bill. The Safe Oakland Streets (SOS) Initiative aims to prevent severe and fatal traffic crashes, eliminate injury inequities, and carefully assess and mitigate any equity impacts resulting from safety measures. Assembly Bill 2336 is a proposed state law that would allow Oakland to administer speed safety systems as a pilot program. The goal of the bill is to make our streets safer and in alignment with the SOS Initiative. Severe and fatal crashes disproportionately impact BIPOC communities, seniors, children, and people with disabilities.
The Flex Streets program includes a variety of flexible uses of public and private property, including parklets, which are business use of parking spaces. The City of Oakland adopted a permanent Flex Streets program in March 2022 following the Covid-19 Pandemic Flex Streets Program launch in April 2020. With the permanent program, a new set of guidelines have been established for Parklet applicants and permittees to meet by July 1, 2023. The goal of these guidelines is to ensure that all parklets are installed in a safe and accessible manner. These guidelines will be enforced through an application permit and annual renewal including an inspection thereafter. Prior to finalizing these guidelines, OakDOT would like to hear from MCPD.
