Abstract: The Corps intends to divest itself of ownership of a parcel of real property known as the Oakland Inner Harbor Tidal Canal (OIHTC), located within the cities of Oakland and Alameda. The OIHTC is a navigable waterway, approximately 85 acres in size, 400-feet wide, and nearly 2 miles long. A narrow strip of shoreline on each side of the canal is also included in the property footprint. The Federal property begins approximately 1,800 feet northwest of the Park Street Bridge and terminates at the mouth of San Leandro Bay. The United States does not need the property for any Army related mission and the Corps believes that there is no longer a Federal interest in ownership of the canal. It should therefore be disposed of in accordance with Army regulations. The Corps intends to subdivide the property into several parcels and cede the Alameda side to the City of Alameda and the Oakland side to the City of Oakland or another designated public agency. With the transfer of this property to the cities of Oakland and Alameda, the Corps proposes to end its existing regulatory moratorium (Section 1.3) on permitting of structures in the OIHTC outside of the federal channel. However, the Corps will continue to retain maintenance responsibilities pertaining to the navigation boundaries of the OIHTC, as it is still considered a federally authorized channel until such time as it is de-authorized by an act of Congress. The High Street Bridge, the Park Street Bridge and the Miller-Sweeney Bridge span over the OIHTC, are currently owned by Alameda County, and are not part the proposed action. The Fruitvale Avenue railroad bridge, which spans the canal (adjacent to the Miller-Sweeney Bridge), and the footings for the High Street Bridge, the Park Street Bridge and the Miller-Sweeney Bridge, are Federal property and will not be transferred as part of this proposed action. The Corps will retain the responsibility for maintaining the railroad bridge in accordance with Congressional decisions.
