Request #RT-2473
Dear City Clerk, February 1, 2014 I was looking for a good place to run my business on Piedmont Avenue of Oakland, CA. I saw a while ago a vacant place available for rent listed on Craigslist. I think the address was 4157 Piedmont Avenue, Oakland, CA. 94611. Then I ran by the Oakland City Inspection/Zoning desk and learned that I could have retail or an office at the address. Assuming I am the sole tenant occupying the entire place at the address, my question to you is as follows: 1. If living at the address is allowed by the City of Oakland, meaning I can live and run my business at the address if the landlord is okay with it. Please provide any documentation to support this. OR 2. If living at the address is required by the City of Oakland meaning that I must live there while I run my business and the landlord has no say but to comply with the City requirement. Please provide any document to support the requirement I want to thank you in advance for your timely response. Mary

Dear Records Requestor, The information you have requested is not a public records request which the City of Oakland could answer with available documents. Rather, you are seeking a Zoning Determination for a specific property location. That is a fee-based service which requires independent staff research and the creation of new materials. Please contact the City's zoning information phone line at 510-238-3911, and/or contact the zoning counter in person to pursue this information. If you wish to consult the Oakland Planning Code, that information is available online at Sincerely, James A. Bondi
