The Broad Street commercial corridor, including Broad and Randolph streets, primarily serves the Ocean View neighborhood, or the “O.” Ocean View is one of three neighborhoods commonly referred together as the “OMI”: Ocean View, Merced Heights, and Ingleside. It is home to a long-standing African American community and growing Chinese and Latino communities.
Broad Street and Randolph connect through Orizaba forming a major road artery of the neighborhood. The area is mostly composed of single family residences with family serving businesses mostly at block corners along the corridor. The area is served by the M Muni line which runs straight across the Ocean View neighborhood.
Ocean View public library anchors the social capital of the neighborhood, offering support and resources to the community. Several organizations have been active over the years providing services to the corridor and advocating for improvements; Ocean View Neighborhood residents , OMI Neighbors in Action, OMI Community Action Organization and the OMI Community Collaborative are actively organizing in strategies to improve safety and revitalize Broad Street corridor. Invest in Neighborhoods staff seeks to build on the momentum of residents organizing and improve the area around Broad and Randolph by supporting new and existing businesses.
