Last night, Oakland’s city council denied an appeal filed by Friends of Knowland Park and two partnering environmental groups against the City Planning Commission’s approval of the zoo’s amended expansion plan back in April. Barring a lawsuit, the East Bay Zoological Society, which oversees the zoo, is cleared to move forward.
