Spreading the “buzz” on Oakland

The Oakland Business Improvement District is a dynamic team of three full-time staff members, an engaged Board of Directors of over two-dozen Oakland Business District Stakeholders and our dedicated third-party cleaning crew. They work to keep Oakland the gem that it is; vibrant, youthful, clean and safe are top priorities of OBID.
