Discriminatory parking enforcement alleged
on February 25, 2010
Oakland parking officers received instructions to loosen enforcement in two wealthy neighborhoods–Montclair and Broadway Terrace–while maintaining stricter policies in the rest of the story, according to a memo obtained by the Chronicle.
In response, SEIU Local 1021, a union that represents parking officers, tells Oakland North it is holding a protest today at noon at Frank H. Ogawa Plaza.
AC Transit wants to hear from bicyclists and pedestrians tonight about updates to its driver training program. It will have a representative at a Walk Oakland Bike Oakland Meeting from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., 2301 Broadway. For more info visit walkoaklandbikeoakland.org
