Executive Order Preventing Commercial Eviction for Nonpayment of Rent Set to Expire September 30

City Reminds Small Business Owners of Available Resources



Oakland, CA – On July 21, 2020, Oakland City Council amended the Ordinances on the local commercial eviction moratorium to conform with the Governor’s Executive Order. The current Executive Order is set to expire on Thursday, September 30, 2021. The protections that prevented commercial evictions of small businesses and non-profit organizations for nonpayment of rent will end on that day. Back rent may be due in full depending on the payment plan or other agreement negotiated between the tenant and landlord. The moratorium on residential evictions remains in effect until the end of the Local Emergency as declared by Oakland City Council.



Available Resources

Through grants from the City of Oakland, the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights of the San Francisco Bay Area (LCCRSF) has provided webinars and one-on-one consultations on commercial lease negotiations for the last 10 months. Lease negotiation webinar recordings and presentation slides are available in multiple languages at: https://www.oaklandca.gov/resources/coronavirus-2019-covid-19-business-and-worker-resources#eviction-moratorium



In addition to monthly Virtual Legal Services Clinics, LCCRSF is offering one-on-one consultations on commercial leases through the Legal Services for Entrepreneurs program. Apply at: https://lccrsf.org/get-assistance/legal-services-for-entrepreneurs/commercial-tenant-legal-assistance/



Businesses with specific commercial lease questions can also email: [email protected]



In October, LCCRSF will host both in-person and virtual “Know Your Rights for Commercial Tenants” seminars to assist owners who face eviction once the moratorium ends. Both sessions will cover the eviction process and legal protections available throughout the process. Seminar details and registration links will be posted shortly at: https://www.oaklandca.gov/resources/coronavirus-2019-covid-19-business-and-worker-resources#eviction-moratorium



Commercial tenants seeking additional information and support on the eviction moratorium can contact:

Alameda County Superior Court Self-Help Center for phone and video consultations as well as a live chat feature
Alameda County Bar Association for a referral to a lawyer
Virtual Lawyers in the Library for free information and a referral program


Business owners and entrepreneurs with general business questions can connect with City staff through the Remote Business Assistance Center (BAC) pilot program. Oakland Economic & Workforce Development staff will be available for 30-minute appointments at five library locations:

West Oakland (every other Monday morning)
81st Avenue (every other Tuesday evening)

Appointments through December are by reservation only. To schedule an appointment, visit www.oaklandca.gov/RemoteBAC. For help scheduling an appointment, call (510) 238-7398.



Residential Eviction Moratorium Not Impacted

The statewide eviction and rent increase moratorium ends September 30, 2021. This does not affect Oakland’s residential moratorium which will last until the Local Emergency is terminated by Oakland City Council. Have questions about residential rent? Ask before you act! Contact a RAP housing counselor at (510) 238-3721 or [email protected].



Leading by Example

After convening business owners, property owners and investors on restructuring leases, the Oakland Economic Recovery Advisory Council recommended that

landlords work with businesses to develop terms that include a combination

of rent forgiveness, deferral and elimination of fixed monthly payments, replaced

by percent of sales.



At its June 1, 2021 meeting, the Oakland City Council adopted an Ordinance that allowed amendments to lease agreements with seven tenants in Frank H. Ogawa Plaza to forgive up to 50 percent of rent balances. The Ordinance also allowed up to a one-year period of reduced rent to further aid the small business and nonprofit tenants in their recovery. It was deemed that departure or closure of these businesses would create vacancies in the Plaza that would be difficult for the City to fill at comparable rental rates in the near-term and could eliminate jobs. The City Council determined that providing reasonable rent reduction and forgiveness would minimize potential lost revenue to the City and avoid further worsening of Plaza conditions.

Oakland’s Residential Eviction Moratorium Not Affected by End of Federal Moratorium

Oakland –– With renewed conversation around the residential eviction moratorium, Oakland wants to remind tenants and property owners that the end of the federal moratorium does not affect Oakland’s residential eviction moratorium currently in place.

Oakland’s moratorium on evictions and rent increases will last until the Local Emergency is terminated by Oakland City Council.

The State of California extended its residential eviction moratorium through September 30, 2021, and increased reimbursement percentages for rent relief to 100% for a total of 18 months from when the tenant first applied for relief.

Oakland Redistricting Commission Announces Public Hearing Schedule for Adopting New District Maps

15-member Commission tasked with setting new district boundaries for the City Council and School Board

Oakland, CA — Oakland’s inaugural Redistricting Commission announced its public hearing schedule as it deliberates and adopts new district boundaries for the City Council and School Board of Directors. District boundaries define and consolidate shared communities of interest which translate to voting power and political influence.

The Commission will receive public testimony on the following dates (all times at 6:00 pm):

Wednesday, August 11, 2021

Wednesday, September 8, 2021

Wednesday, October 13, 2021

Wednesday, November 10, 2021


The August and September public hearing dates will focus on communities of interest testimony which will help the Commission identify interest groups that should remain in the same district boundary. The October and November meetings will focus on testimony surrounding the proposed draft maps, which will be available in early-October 2021. The Commission’s deadline to approve the new district boundaries is December 31, 2021.

“We encourage all Oaklanders to attend and provide input on the redistricting process,” Commission Chair Tracy Richmond McKnight said. “This is the first time the new maps will be approved by the community and we need your help in ensuring your priorities are met.”

Additional public hearings and in-person workshops may be announced at later dates. To stay informed of Oakland’s redistricting process, visit: www.oaklandca.gov/redistricting and select the ‘Provide Input’ icon at the top of the page.



Background Information


In November 2014, Oakland voters approved a ballot measure to establish an independent 15-member Redistricting Commission beginning in 2021. The Commissioners were vetted by an independent screening panel and met strict eligibility requirements. The Commission was formed in August 2020 and meets regularly on the second Wednesday of each month.

The Oakland Redistricting Commission is responsible for approving the final map for new City Council and School Board of Directors district boundaries. The new maps will go into effect in 2022, prior to the November 2022 election.

Tenth Oakland Youth Poet Laureate Announced

Myra Estrada, 16, rising junior at Oakland High School


Web: https://oaklandlibrary.org/news/2021/06/tenth-oakland-youth-poet-laureate-announced


Oakland, CA – Myra Estrada has been named the 2021 Oakland Youth Poet Laureate, winning a $5,000 college scholarship after competing with six other Finalists. The award was announced by Mayor Libby Schaaf on Friday evening following performances by the Finalists on Facebook Live.



Ms. Estrada, going into her junior year at Oakland High School, will represent the Oakland community through poetry, media, and public appearances. She is on the Latino Honor Roll, and participates in many school clubs and college prep programs. She is a shy person and believes her poetry is a form of self-expression. She has been writing poetry since sixth grade when she won her first poetry contest and felt strong reading her poem. She felt as if what she was saying mattered and resonated with people.

Ms. Estrada says, “Being named Oakland Youth Poet Laureate gives me hope for my future and my generation. With my title I’ll strive to advocate for amplified youth voices and youth demands/wishes for the betterment of Oakland.”



2021 OYPL Myra Estrada in conversation with 2018 and 2019 OYPL Finalist Monique Jonath



This year, for the first time, two Vice Youth Poets Laureate were named. Oakland’s 2021 Vice Youth Poets Laureate are Kaylan Black and Nadia Elbgal.



Ms. Black is 15 years old and going into her junior year at Envision Academy of Art and Technology. She has been on the African American Honor Roll and Achievement, Honor Roll, a MLK Oratorical Festival participant since elementary school and a Junior Community Organizer with ACCE (Alliance of Californians for Community Empowerment). She says, “What is astounding about poetry is everyone has a unique style. People can build bonds through this art. Poetry is what you make it.”



2021Vice OYPL Kaylan Black in conversation with 2019 Vice OYPL Eleanor Wikstrom



Ms. Elbgal is 17 and going into her senior year at Berkeley High School. She is an actress, a playwright, and a singer as well as a poet. She mentors Yemeni students in OUSD elementary school and is an activist for the Yemeni community and the Muslim community. Her safe space is within her writing and when she says that poetry is how she sees the world, she means that she tries to find the flow in everything.



2021 Vice OYPL Nadia Elbgal in conversation with 2019 OYPL Finalist Hayden Renato



J. K. Fowler, 2021 OYPL Judge, founder and executive director of Nomadic Press and member of the City of Oakland’s Cultural Affairs Commission says, “The 2021 Oakland Youth Poet Laureate Program's cohort of nominees and Finalists is what happens when pens are given to celestial hearts, brandished as love-painted claws to carve out truths of living in the Town and this world. The OYPL program continues to craft platforms for the voices of Oakland's youth, a youth who have always cast future out of the splintered rebar left behind by the previous generations and spun gold with our wise ancestral weavers. The future is bright in the hands of poets like Myra Estrada (OYPL), Kaylan Black, and Nadia Elbgal (Vice OYPLs)."



The Oakland Youth Poet Laureate program, in its tenth year, is run by Oakland Public Library Teen Services and is an unprecedented citywide effort to celebrate literacy through poetry and connect young writers to far-reaching opportunities. Each year, OPL accepts submissions from talented Oakland writers (ages 13-18) to be considered for the honor.



The Oakland Youth Poet Laureate, the Vice Youth Poets Laureate, and all Finalists are available for performances, talks, and workshops. Submit your booking requests at oaklandlibrary.org/yplbooking. For more information please visit oaklandlibrary.org/youthpoets or contact Sharon McKellar, Supervising Librarian for Teen Services, at 510-238-7613 or [email protected].
