Port of Oakland plan for ex-Army Base takes a step forward

From a Port of Oakland news release:

Port of Oakland commissioners have given initial approval to a landmark deal with CenterPoint Properties for a logistics center at the former base. The tentative agreement caps nearly 15 years of planning for the most-anticipated Port growth project ever. Port officials said today that the agreement includes unprecedented commitments to hire local workers.

The Board of Port Commissioners voted initial approval of the agreement this week. It comes up for final vote Nov. 30. If Commissioners say yes a second time, the deal becomes official in January.
