STAND Mission Statement
STAND — Standing Together for Accountable Neighborhood Development — is an alliance of community groups, residents and merchants that formed in response to the recent surge of high-density condo development proposals for Temescal, Rockridge, and other North Oakland neighborhoods. While STAND supports new development and recognizes the benefits of sustainable, equitable, and responsible growth, our mission is to provide a voice for the thousands of citizens alarmed by the number, size, density, and impacts of these projects and to hold the City of Oakland accountable in identifying the full range of project impacts on traffic, pedestrian safety, parking, air quality, public infrastructure and services, and neighborhood character and diversity.
STAND also seeks to influence the design of new projects by working early in the planning stages with developers and the City to allow greater density while maintaining the unique character, human scale, diversity, affordability, and livability of our neighborhoods through height, bulk, and density controls and by preserving existing rental stock, historic residences and commercial buildings.
