Oakland Measure DD Bond Projects

Measure DD LogoIn November 2002, over 80% of Oakland voters passed Measure DD, a $198.25 million bond measure focused on waterfront improvements at Lake Merritt and the Estuary.  Funded projects include parks, trails, bridges, a recreation center, historic building renovations, land acquisition, and creek restoration.  Though these projects are being phased in over a number of years, some are already complete and many others are in progress.
