The ITS project design, construction, operations and employment will be in full compliance with and subject to the full breadth of rights and entitlements vested in Oakland Bulk and Oversized Terminal (OBOT) by the City of Oakland. ITS will also be governed by the State and Federal regulations and laws including the City of Oakland's Army Base Redevelopment approvals, agreements and the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA).



The Basis of Design (BOD) is the first step in a project’s design process. The BOD describes a project’s operating environment and the desired project performance parameters. The operating environment includes the physical attributes and limitations of project location, available utilities, and regulatory constraints. The BOD leavens project purpose with environmental limitations and policy oversight. Link to pdf
