SunCal Releases Revised Plan Map (Sept 2017)
People all over the San Francisco Bay Area are advocating for the development of environmentally sensitive, sustainable communities. We are working to ensure that Oak Knoll will be one of them. Our goals are clear:
Preservation of the knoll and northeast woodlands as open space.
Restoration of the Rifle Range Creek corridor as a greenbelt.
A suitable community center to replace Club Knoll.
Reasonable housing density.
Mitigation of environmental impacts.
It’s been a 20-year marathon to redevelop the former Oak Knoll Naval base in Oakland, California. But the planning continues. We must persist to see our goals achieved.
