Youth UpRising and Oakland Mayor's Summer Jobs Program Community Mapping Project
The Council is currently assisting a community partner with a detailed community mapping project. Students from Youth UpRising and the Oakland Mayor’s Summer Jobs program conducted a detailed parcel condition survey of the Castlemont neighborhood in Oakland (over 1,000 parcels), as well as a park condition survey. The students are also conducting a food store survey, evaluating the availability of healthy food options among grocery, convenience, and liquor stores throughout East Oakland. See the results of their blight survey.
