Oakland’s roughly 4,000 vacant parcels contribute to blight and fail to help the city combat its housing crisis. Where are these parcels located, why are they being held off the market and what should the city do about them? Hear from the authors of a recent study that sheds light on these questions, and join a policy discussion about creating a vacant parcel tax in the city.
