What should the neighborhood around the SPUR Oakland office look like far into the future? Join us as we work together to play Oakland 2100, a new game that helps visualize future urban growth. Focusing solely on the blocks around SPUR, players will navigate trade-offs, prioritize and place investments, and engage in the type of negotiations that happen in the building of cities every day. Then join us in May as we take the lessons learned on this small scale and use them to envision possible futures for the entire downtown.
