Your Port. Your Community.

We Hear You Loud and Clear.

We know that job creation and economic growth are critical to a vibrant community. But those indicators alone do not tell the whole story when it comes to the well being of our residents. That’s why the Port created its Social Responsibility Division (SRD) that oversees the public impacts of our seaport, airport and commercial real estate activities. SRD stages multiple public forums throughout the year to update residents on Port projects, listen carefully to citizen feedback, and follow up on your suggestions and complaints.  

To further encourage and respond to your on-going questions and interests, we initiated a program called “Meet the Port.”  Contact us with a call on our toll-free hotline, chat live with us online, or visit us during monthly office hours in West and East Oakland (click here to learn more). We look forward to hearing from you so that we can better serve you.

We are your port. Your community is our community.
