If you missed the highly successful first one, here’s your chance to attend the Uptown/West Oakland EcoInnovation District Public Open House #2. What’s an EcoInnovation District? It’s an area “dedicated to sustainability, innovative development practices and inclusive job growth.” The Uptown/West Oakland EcoInnovation District will be designed to combine the goals of both an EcoDistrict (a resilient and sustainable bottom-up development area) and an Innovation District (an area where leading-edge anchor institutions/companies cluster in close proximity to transit-accessible, mixed-use housing, office, and retail for maximum job growth and economic opportunity).

The EcoInnovation District focuses on the Uptown and West Oakland neighborhoods as an area that offers both challenges and unique opportunities. The challenge is that it’s a long overlooked area with a legacy of disinvestment. Yet, there are so many opportunities as this area is strategically located between two of the three largest “city centers” in Pennsylvania — Downtown and Oakland.

Uptown/West Oakland EcoInnovation District Public Open House #2 will take place on Wednesday, March 30 at 6:00 p.m. You’ll have the chance to share your thoughts about the neighborhood and become involved in the planning process.
