Next Deadline:

On April 25, the City Administrator’s office plans to recommend to the Finance Committee of the City of Oakland that they fund the “pre-feasibility study” with the group we are allied with, and that the funds be taken from the current budget, so that we don’t have to wait until July. The Finance Committee is very likely to make this recommendation to the full City Council, and they are very likely to confirm this plan.
