How Oakland is Responding to Opportunity Zones

Join Wendel Rosen LLP on Tuesday, October 29, 2019 who will join a dynamic panel to discuss Opportunity Zones.

Event Details

The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 established Opportunity Zones to accelerate investment in specified United States census tracts through tax incentives. 30 of the 8,700 designated Opportunity Zones are in Oakland, which the city hopes to use to advance equitable economic development in previously ignored neighborhoods.

What plans do investors already have for Oakland and how can the city potentially benefit from the infusion of capital that could be coming? How should the city encourage and direct investments in a way that is most likely to stimulate long term equitable economic growth throughout the Opportunity Zones?
