Alright folks, it is the bottom of the ninth, and it is time to clear the bench for the big showdown.

Tomorrow, June 2nd, the Bay Conservation and Development Commission (BCDC) will hold a public meeting to discuss removing the Port Priority Use designation currently enjoyed by Howard Terminal (an active logistics facility) and thus pave the way for the Oakland A’s stadium, high-rise condominiums and retail complex at the current site of Howard Terminal.

The BCDC’s Seaport Planning Advisory Committee has recommended not to remove the designation, but the BCDC staff has recommended the commission vote in favor of removal of the special designation.

We need the logistics industry to come out in force to show our disapproval for the planned development and removal of the Port Priority Use designation.

What can you do?

  • Join the meeting virtually here and share your opinion with the committee.
  • Send an email. Here is one prepared for you. Fill in your name and email address and hit send.
  • Both!

Thank you all for taking action!
