SPUR realized a long held dream when it opened its Oakland office at 1544 Broadway. The organization, which has been active in San Francisco since 1910 (it was originally the San Francisco Housing Association) and San Jose since 2012, celebrated with a full day open house. Programs included a conversation with new Oakland Director Robert Ogilvie and SPUR policy staff, as well as afternoon programs and a happy hour toasting the new office.
Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf was on hand to celebrate SPUR’s achievement of raising over $40,000 toward the creation of a community-oriented space on Broadway. BCV was proud to support this initiative as well as SPUR’s continued goals to build great neighborhoods and promote good planning and good government in the Bay Area.
