I want
in Oakland.
Mayor Libby Schaaf

Proposition 63, The Safety for All initiative, gives California voters the opportunity to keep guns and ammo out of the hands of violent, dangerous, hateful people this November. This proposition:

- Removes illegal guns from our communities by ensuring that dangerous criminals and domestic abusers sell or transfer their firearms after they’re convicted.

- Requires any business that sells ammunition to report if their ammunition is lost or stolen.

- Requires people to notify law enforcement if their guns are lost or stolen.

- Ensures people convicted of gun theft are ineligible to own guns.

- Strengthens our background check systems and ensures that CA law enforcement shares data about dangerous people with the FBI.

Now this is how you design a freeway underpass

A smart redesign of a California city’s busiest underpass reveals a well-lit path fringed with public art, landscaping, and a sweeping 26-foot-wide sidewalk.

Dan, this is awesome!
I'm sure politically it's very difficult to get things done with the Broadway / 880 underpass but c'mon, we can do better than off-putting freeway barriers. With all the artists in Oakland...

It feels like a good model for Broadway under 880, right?

Great Post thank you, I recently saw this post because I'm venturing to start a Coffee pop up at very grass roots level. All these Ideas are great, but it boils down to. Going to the City of Oakland Health department and getting a Pop up Permitt. Would love more feed back Thanks

Progress from the SF County Transportation Authority:

"On Friday, we announced a broad late-night bus service increase by all of our major bus operators, including Muni, AC Transit, Golden Gate Transit and SamTrans. This next step keeps our forward momentum going. Of course, the holy grail of late night transportation is 24-hour BART service. We will get there once we build a much-needed second transbay tube.

This second tube will allow BART to run 24 hours, in addition to helping us create a true regional rail network by connecting Caltrain to the Capitol Corridor and ultimately getting high speed rail over to the East Bay. Yet, for now, we are making progress one step at a time. We will continue to transform our transportation systems to reflect the reality of our residents."

Matching late-night transportation with our late-night reality

San Francisco and the Bay Area run 24 hours a day. We are not a 9-to-5 community. We have a robust nighttime economy — in San Francisco, contributing more than …

We’re excited to let you know that over the past couple of months, we've been working hard to solidify the form and mission of kitLAB - a new maker-type space, located at 5447 Telegraph Avenue in Oakland, near Temescal. kitLAB will be a hub for budding and experienced artists, engineers, educators, activists, creative changemakers, and local community members to make tools, kits and artworks to share and evolve together. Working in collaboration with the East Bay Community Space, kitLAB’s mission will be to resource and develop people’s innate abilities into skills for creating ever more complex, elegant and useful works to offer back to the community.

If you’d like to learn more about our mission and vision, and follow our progress in the coming months as we work toward our opening in late-fall, we encourage you to take a look at our evolving kitLAB website - www.kitlab.org/. We also invite you to follow us on our kitLAB Facebook page - www.facebook.com/thekitlab/?fr...!
