COMMUNITY PARTNERING & ENGAGEMENT  

 

Partnerships in place with one or more community organizations, with specific name given to 
partnership and objectives for the partnership established (e.g., a formalized partnership among 
community transportation, parks, and land use organizations for the incorporation of green 
infrastructure to reduce flooding and overflows)  

 

Participation in projects with neighborhood groups/stakeholders to create recreational 
opportunities and community assets (e.g., parks, enhanced public space)  

 

Use of a Triple Bottom Line approach, including engagement with stakeholders, to analyze 
growth planning alternatives, considering financial, social, and environmental costs and benefits  

 

Participation in regular meetings with community stakeholders and offering of environmental 
education opportunities (e.g., river walks)  

 

Web presence established with social media engagement 

A new public tour program was established for the MWWTP in 2016 for residents and schools. A 
webpage was established to make it easy for the public to make reservations online. Tours are led by 
employees and retirees.   

The District set up nine locations within the service area where residents can dispose of unwanted and 
expired medicines. The locations are listed on the District’s website and mentioned at community 
events.   

Staff actively does public outreach with businesses and residents to reduce the disposal of fats, oils and 
grease in the sewer system and pollution prevention. The District also does joint outreach with other 
agencies on pollution prevention. Information is available via the District website, printed outreach 
materials, billboards, and a hotline number.   

In the mid-1990s, the District formed the West Oakland Liaison Group to provide a forum for District 
staff and local community members to discuss current and upcoming projects and activities and for the 
District to receive feedback from the community on any specific concerns.  REFER TO APPENDIX 1 FOR
