The City of Oakland is going through a rezoning of the Central Business District as part of the Citywide zoning update. The proposed zoning includes a Height/Intensity Map that restricts heights of buildings as well as requires the buildings to get more narrow above a certain height. There are various regulations that effect how a building is designed. Information on proposals can be found here.
The next two meetings are:
