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!
Every fall, Keep Oakland Beautiful provides free daffodil bulbs to any group willing to plant them in visible locations on Oakland public property or school property, so long as the group agrees to maintain the site as an Oakland Adopt-a-Spot.
