Statement on the Henry J. Kaiser Convention Center

At its regular meeting on April 12, 2011, the Peralta Community College District Board of Trustees issued the following statement:

“The District declined to purchase the Henry J. Kaiser Convention Center.  The District requested that the City of Oakland consider a government-to-government partnership between the City of Oakland, the Oakland Unified School District, and Peralta.  The partnership could also include non-profits and for-profit groups.  This joint use will minimize the inherent risk involved with acquisition and maintenance of this facility while also providing maximum access for public use.  The District requested that the City of Oakland take the lead on the negotiation process.”
