The Estuary Policy Plan (EPP) is part of the General Plan. This plan includes policies to enhance the Oakland waterfront as a resource for the City. Recommendations from the Estuary Policy Plan replace those in the General Plan for the Estuary shoreline, extending from Castro Street to the East Creek Slough.

General Plan Update

The General Plan Update is a once-in-a-generation opportunity for all Oaklanders to work together to create a visionary blueprint for our City's future over the next two decades. The update will occur in two phases, guided by a set of core principles rooted in equity.

Phase 1 includes updates to the Housing Element and Safety Element, and the development of a new Environmental Justice Element and Industrial Lands policy. Phase 2 includes updates to the Land Use and Transportation Element (LUTE), Open Space, Conservation, and Recreation (OSCAR) Element, Noise Element, and the development of a new Infrastructure and Facilities Element
