Community Relations

Community Relations

Community Relations is a department within the Social Responsibility Division at the Port of Oakland. The department is responsible for defining, developing, and administering programs in support of those projects that are most critical to the Port's mission as it relates to the local community.

What We Do

The Community Relations department plans and implements community education programs through a series of activities known as "Good Neighbor" programs. Since 1999, the Port has adopted a Good Neighbor Policy, reaffirming our strong commitment to maintaining channels of communication within the various communities and involving our neighbors in the entire Port planning process. We also are committed to helping our neighboring communities reach their full potential—culturally, economically, and socially.

These outreach activities are designed to increase public awareness and understanding of the Port, its projects and policies, and to promote overall goodwill. Our commitment to being a good neighbor is the basis of all our programs, which serve to strengthen local partnerships, encourage open dialogue, and engage and involve our neighbors in planning for the Port's future.
