- Federal investigators probe West Oakland development
By Kimberly Veklerov - Wednesday Jul 19, 2017
Officials with the U.S. Department of Transportation and Environmental Protection Agency have opened an investigation into whether the approval process behind an industrial development in West Oakland was racially discriminatory because of high levels of air pollution that are expected to seep into the surrounding black community. The investigation will focus on whether the construction approvals — and the broader public participation process for developing the former Army base — discriminated against black, Latino and Asian American residents in violation of the federal Civil Rights Act, according to a letter sent Tuesday by the federal agencies to Mayor Libby Schaaf and Michael Colbruno, a port commissioner. “Even as the community was saying this isn’t what we want and we don’t want more truck traffic, the city was pursuing that avenue,” said Adenike Adeyeye, a senior researcher and policy analyst at the law firm. Oakland officials have long known that air pollution and associated health problems are higher in low-income, minority neighborhoods because of poor housing conditions and proximity to industrial plants. Black children under age 5 in Alameda County are six times as likely as white children to be hospitalized for asthma emergencies, according to a city report published in March that looked at public health data. The federal probe comes just weeks after an Alameda County civil grand jury slammed the Oakland City Council for failing to abide by state and local laws governing open meeting laws, saying that officials engaged in “backroom dealing” as they negotiated with developers over public land sales.
