Seaport Compatibility Measures
The Port of Oakland, community and maritime stakeholders, and City officials have been working together over the past two years to develop Seaport Compatibility Measures.
The Port and the City are engaged in other joint planning and coordination efforts that will continue beyond the decision on the Howard Terminal Project, as described HERE.
The Port of Oakland’s Board of Port Commissioners places top priority on supporting the maritime industry in Oakland and helping its tenants and business partners grow. It has committed to addressing industry concerns over the Oakland A’s proposed ballpark and mixed-use development at Howard Terminal and ensuring it is compatible with seaport operations. To back up its maritime commitment, the Board has committed to engaging with maritime stakeholders to develop Seaport Compatibility Measures. This commitment is documented in Attachment D to the non-binding Exclusive Negotiation Term Sheet.
The Measures would address issues ranging from road congestion and vessel traffic to a buffer zone between the seaport and residential development. The final Measures would become part of any final real estate agreements.
