City-County Neighborhood Initiative History

In 2003, Mayor Brown convened a Violence Prevention Task Force comprised of City and County Agency Directors, City Council Members, Alameda County Supervisors and area Law Enforcement leaders. The Task Force chose to pilot a community capacity-building strategy in two small, targeted high crime neighborhoods – Sobrante Park in East Oakland and the Hoover Historic District of West Oakland.  The original name of the Task Force’s project was the Oakland City-County Violence Prevention Initiative.  To better reflect the emphasis on both violence prevention and creating safer, more resilient communities, the name was changed to the City-County Neighborhood Initiative.

Currently, the CCNI is managed by staff from the City of Oakland Neighborhood Services Division and the Alameda County Public Health Department’s Office of the Director.
