Paint the Town!
Are you ready to Paint the Town!? Apply for Oakland’s new street mural program! After receiving 150 responses in our Request for Community Interest, OakDOT is piloting temporary street murals. Application period open from September 19th-November 30th. Streets murals can brighten and represent a neighborhood, and help strengthen community spirit. They can also potentially reduce traffic speeding, and they’re fun to make! A street mural designed and painted by community members brings people together and adds life and surprise to our streets.
Daffodil Days are Here!
