Repave Telegraph Update

Earlier this year, we announced that our campaign to get the City of Oakland to recognize the paving that needed to be on Telegraph had been successful. With over 600 signatures of the petition, the mass numbers of calls and emails and the overall support of sharing our campaign, the City of Oakland decided it was time to take action.
