Alameda County Regresses to Purple Tier Prompting Changes in Allowed Activities

City Reminds Businesses that Flex Street Initiative has Streamlined Permitting for use of Public Rights-of-Way



Oakland, CA – Today, the California Department of Public Health announced that Alameda County is now in the most restrictive tier in the State’s Blueprint for a Safer Economy reopening framework. Alameda County is among 41 California counties now in the Purple Tier. In the Purple Tier, indoor dining is not allowed, retail store capacity is capped at 25%, and gyms and fitness centers may only operate outdoors. Hair Salons, Barbershops and Personal Care Services may continue to operate indoors with modifications. Per the State’s requirement, any activity that was only permitted in the Red or Orange Tiers will need to close. For the full roster of activities, visit https://www.cdph.ca.gov/Programs/CID/DCDC/CDPH%20Document%20Library/COVID-19/Dimmer-Framework-September_2020.pdf. Businesses must comply with the changes by 12:01 a.m. on Wednesday, November 18.



Oakland businesses that need to expand operations outdoors to comply with the State’s guidance should look to the City’s Flex Street Initiative. All fees have been waived and permitting has been streamlined for business’ use of the public rights-of-way, including sidewalk, parking lane and roadway encroachments. Businesses expanding operations to private parking lots and other private outdoor areas will also benefit from streamlined permitting processes at www.oaklandca.gov/flexstreets. Since launching in June more than 130 businesses have applied through Flex Streets.



“We need Alameda County residents and businesses to, once again, rise to the challenge and help flatten the curve,” said Dr. Nicholas Moss, Alameda County Health Officer. “Stay home for the holidays, wear face masks, maintain at least 6 feet of distance, wash your hands frequently, and get your flu shot. Now more than ever, we must protect ourselves, our loved ones, and our neighbors with these simple strategies. We all must recommit ourselves to the safety measures that helped us lower case rates in September and October.” Read Alameda County’s release at https://covid-19.acgov.org/covid19-assets/docs/press/press-release-2020.11.16.pdf.



The State’s more nimble reopening approach allows for a timelier response that will protect our communities, save lives, and keep our health care systems from becoming overwhelmed.

New App Makes It Easier to Schedule Building Inspections

Oakland, CA – The City of Oakland’s Planning & Building Department launched a new application called, Oakland Building Inspection Request, making it easier for customers to schedule building inspections.

Once downloaded to a mobile device, applicants and contractors can use the new tool at their convenience to schedule inspections.

“The changing nature of our work environment calls for us to regularly adopt new and better ways to engage our public,” said William Gilchrist, Director of the Planning & Building Department. “This is one more way that customers may easily access our services, minimize wait times for appointments, and allow staff to better support customers in other ways.”


The day of the scheduled inspection, users will receive notification of the inspector's arrival window period, minimizing long, ambiguous wait times.

This new app is one of three ways that customers can request an inspection:

• Call: (510) 238-3443

• E-mail: [email protected]

• Download the app:
Android https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.oakland.inspectionrequest
iPhone

https://apps.apple.com/us/app/oakland-inspection-request/id1536410984

Moving more customers to the mobile app to schedule inspections helps to optimize internal operations, as it will dramatically reduce the number of phone calls that staff manage. This will allow staff to focus more time on permit research and other important work directly servicing customers.

Adjustments Made, But Event Goes On

City of Oakland Hosts 29th Annual Thanksgiving Dinner a Little Differently for 2020

Oakland, CA – On Tuesday, November 24, the 29th Annual Thanksgiving dinner hosted by the City of Oakland’s Human Services Department will look a little different due to the COVID-19 global pandemic.

The Thanksgiving Dinner, in its 29th year, is part of the City’s Hunger Program founded in 1985 during Mayor Lionel J. Wilson’s administration. With the support of donors and volunteers, the City typically serves thousands of low-income families, seniors, and persons experiencing homelessness with a hearty Thanksgiving meal in a communal, festive atmosphere. However, this year, due to the global health pandemic, the celebration will look a little different:

New name – the event is now called Community Day of Thanks.
New location – the event is going mobile and will no longer be held at the Marriott in Downtown Oakland. The Marriott will act as staging location for meal preparation and distribution with volunteers picking up meals to be delivered.
More meals – this year, the City will provide 3,000 meals to Oakland residents, an increase from 2,000 meals in years past.
Volunteers – volunteers will deliver the meals to food pantry sites throughout the City and they will distribute the meals to residents from their respective sites.


“We are so grateful to the many volunteers who have generously donated time and resources to this great event in the past”, said Sara Bedford, Director of Human Services. “We look forward to continuing this great tradition, albeit a little different, providing a holiday meal for those residents most in need through our delivery system”.

The City is asking for monetary donations to support meal preparations. A donation of $26 will provide a meal for one guest and $104 for a family of four. Donations are tax deductible. Please make your checks payable to the City of Oakland Hunger Program, and mail to:

City of Oakland Hunger Program, Attn: Talia Rubin

150 Frank H. Ogawa Plaza, Suite 4340, Oakland, CA 94612

Coronavirus Aid, Relief, And Economic Security (CARES) Act Funding

Application Deadlines Extended for City Grant Programs for Small Businesses, Individual Artists, Nonprofits



Oakland, CA – The application periods for three City of Oakland CARES Act-funded grant programs launched in September have been extended.



The Oakland CARES Act Small Business Grant Program will accept applications until 5 p.m. on Friday, October 23, 2020. This program will provide $10,000 grants to qualifying Oakland small businesses that have been negatively impacted by COVID-19 and have gross revenues under $2 million. Online applications and eligibility requirements in four languages are available at: mainstreetlaunch.org/oakland-cares-act-grant/



The application deadline for the Oakland CARES Nonprofit Grant Fund has been extended to 5 p.m. on Wednesday, October 28, 2020. This program will award grants of up to $25,000 to qualifying community-serving nonprofits with annual budgets of less than $1 million that address the impact of COVID-19 and the needs of low-income residents and businesses in the following areas: Health & Human Services; Economic & Workforce Development; Legal Support; Food Security; Homeless and Renter Support Services; and Education. Online applications and eligibility requirements are available at: communityvisionca.org/oaklandcares/



Finally, the Oakland CARES Fund for Artists and Arts Nonprofits, which will disburse $1.425 million to support individual artists and arts nonprofit organizations that have been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, has been extended to 1 p.m. on Friday, October 23, 2020. The program will award grants of up to $20,000 to arts nonprofits with annual budgets of less than $2.5 million, while supporting individual artists with grants of up to $3,000 each. With the extension, due to undersubscription in the program, there has also been an adjustment to the eligibility requirements for arts nonprofits to make the program’s Paycheck Protection Program threshold of $20,000 a selection preference rather than an exclusionary criterion. The online applications in four languages are available at: cciarts.org/Oakland_CARES_Fund.html



These are the latest CARES Act-funded grant programs launched by the City of Oakland. A grant program for low-income renter and homeowner relief was announced in September. Learn more about the City’s $36.9 million in CARES Act Funding at: oaklandca.gov/CaresAct

Del Valle Regional Park Reopening With Limited Capacity Day Use, Boating, and Camping

Blue-Green Algae (Cyanobacterial) Warning in Effect



Thursday, October 1, 2020 (Oakland) – Limited day use, boating, and camping are returning to Del Valle Regional Park on Friday, October 2. However, there will be strict capacity restrictions in place to limit overcrowding and maintain social distancing among visitors. A Blue-Green Algae “Cyanobacterial” Danger Warning has also been issued for Lake Del Valle as recent tests showed elevated levels of toxins in the water.



Due to Blue-Green Algae, water contact is not recommended, especially for small children and pets, who are most likely to be affected by toxins. Eating fish is also not recommended, nor is kayaking, paddleboarding, or use of other small watercraft. Swimming is not currently permitted at Del Valle due to COVID-19 restrictions.



Day use vehicle access has been reduced to comply with local Health Department social distancing requirements and will be provided on a first-come, first-serve basis. Additionally, all picnic areas, barbeques, and group campsites will remain closed in compliance with state and local health orders and NO SWIMMING IS ALLOWED.



“Park Rangers and other staff have worked diligently to develop a plan to safely reopen Del Valle in accordance with state and local COVID-19 heath orders,” said General Manager Robert Doyle. “The health and safety of visitors and our staff is our top priority.”



“Visitors still need to follow all social distancing guidelines from local health agencies, in particular, they need to bring masks and wear them when around others,” added Doyle.



Del Valle is one of the largest Regional Parks in the East Bay and one of three State Parks the Park District manages. Its centerpiece is a five-miles-long lake with an abundance of water-oriented recreation. The park also includes 4,395 acres of surrounding open space recreation. In normal, non-COVID-19 times, popular activities include hiking, horseback riding, picnicking, fishing, boating, swimming, and camping. However, many of those activities are prohibited or severely limited due to COVID-19.



“Restoring public access to Del Valle has been a challenge,” added Doyle. “We thank the community for their support and understanding during this pandemic and their patience during the temporary closure.



Reservations and Fee Payment Required in Advance:

To reduce touch points and help maintain safety, fee payment for boat launch and quagga inspection is required in advance. Payment can be made at www.ebparks.org/activities/boatingsailing. Additionally, camping is by reservation only. Camping reservations can be made at www.ebparks.org/activities/camping.



About Blue-Green Algae:

Blue-Green Algae (Cyanobacteria) are natural organisms that are present in most lakes. Certain conditions – low water levels, limited water circulation, increased heat and light, and ash from wildfires, among other factors – can cause cyanobacteria to bloom and, in some cases, release toxins.



Statewide Burn Ban in Effect:

A CalFire Burn Ban is in effect due to limited firefighting resources and extreme fire conditions throughout the state. No open fires, campfires, wood-burning, or charcoal barbeques are allowed. Only natural gas or propane-fueled stoves are permitted in designated areas.



The East Bay Regional Park District is the largest regional park system in the nation, comprising 73 parks, 55 miles of shoreline, and over 1,300 miles of trails for hiking, biking, horseback riding, and environmental education. The Park District receives more than 25 million visits annually throughout Alameda and Contra Costa counties in the San Francisco Bay Area.

The Outdoor Recreation Department offers a 3-year partnership program to Alameda and Contra Costa County non-profits where our staff provide one free camping trip and three-day trips to your organization for three consecutive years. Not only do the kids or families receive a memorable experience in....
