Fred Blackwell, Oakland’s head of Economic Development and the early point-person for the Oakland Army Base Redevelopment Project, touted the Oakland Bulk & Oversized Terminal (OBOT) as a “gift” to the “environmental community” in this video clip based on an earlier video-blog interview posted August 16th, 2012.
Blackwell, now CEO of The San Francisco Foundation, as well as Insight Terminal Solutions, have pointed to Oakland Developer Phil Tagami’s Oakland Global and the Oakland Bulk & Oversized Terminal within it as having an an environmental advantage because of its fast and close rail-to-ship design layout.
This video has not been referred to in the mainstream media, yet it has been on Zennie62 on YouTube since 2012. One more reason why the OBOT developers brought their story to Zennie62Media – it was being ignored by those same publications and TV news broadcasts.
