Created as part of the Uptown/West Oakland EconInnovation District Plan, the Uptown Task Force is comprised of representatives from organizations in Uptown or directly adjacent areas, as well as other organizations that are expected to play a key role in implementing the Plan. The goal is to represent the diverse interests of the community including residents, institutions, non-profits, service providers, businesses, entertainment venues, large landowners, and energy providers.
The Task Force is convened by Duquesne University, which assembles and organizes each meeting, including establishing the agenda, writing meeting minutes, coordinating the location of the meeting along with other member organizations, and furnishing a public-facing website that describes the Task Force and provides the approved meeting minutes.
