Founded in 1980, Oakland Planning and Development Corporation (OPDC) is committed to making Oakland a great place to live, work, visit and play by providing a variety of services that meet the community’s most critical needs. We build new homes and renovate existing homes for sale to homeowners. We provide quality, affordable apartments and connect residents to resources to improve their lives. We lead thousands of volunteers annually to complete beautification projects and keep our streets clean. Our workforce and youth programs help job seekers and at-risk high school students create bright futures. We advocate for good urban design and convene major planning initiatives, such as The Oakland 2025 Master Plan, to shape the neighborhood vision and bring the resident voice to the table with large anchor institutions and developers. We are working with dozens of partners to implement Oakland 2025’s core vision of creating vibrant, diverse residential neighborhoods connected to high-quality multi-modal transportation systems.
Our Purpose: To build a better Oakland and help neighbors thrive
Our Vision: Oakland is a beautiful, well-designed, sought-after neighborhood in which a diverse mix of residents and visitors thrive.
