I can’t believe this episode is finally out for everyone to hear! Over a year ago I was approached by a colleague who told me that something big was happening in Oakland and that I should monitor the process as they try to put together a new Transportation Department. This the first and hopefully not the last episode in this series I’m starting on the Oakland Transportation Department to cover how it came to be and what comes next. This particular episode follows new advocacy group Transport Oakland as a parklet project they wanted to see completed became political. Future episodes will cover more politics and mechanics of the department specifically, but I thought this would be a good starting point. So I hope you enjoy this first part of the series, and hopefully it won’t take another year to get to episode 2!
