Temescal Telegraph Business Improvement District, 2015 Powered by LocalOn
Community Meeting scheduled for Monday, Aug 4, 6 - 7:30 pm at the Temescal Library. See you then!
The Temescal Obelisk project, a public-private collaborative partnership, to enhance “gateway identity signage” by the Temescal Telegraph Business Improvement District (TTBID), and improve multi-modal connections to/from local streets and Hwy 24, as well as the heart of Temescal and employees of UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital.
The Temescal Obelisk joins the Temescal Mural Project at the PG&E building at Shattuck and 52nd St., and the Temescal Flows mural project at the Highway 24 over/underpass to reduce blight/graffiti and significantly upgrade the visual appearance of the area.

Talking Trash Can Art
TTBID embarked on an ambitious project to transform the concrete tag attracting atrocities. We've decorated 38 cans! Our Design Committee embraced Oakland's unique elements, including its rich mosaic culture with the help of Juan Lopez of New World Mosaic
It's that time of year again! This year, there will be four stages (the Main stage, Kid's stage and two Jazz stages) and three additional blocks of vendors, offering even more chances to promote local artists, craftspeople and creative dare-to-doers, representing the area's rich tapestry of creativity and culture.
