Hi Julio...I don't know. The OMCA map was a source, but I used a number of sources including one from Oakland Public Works. But see the comments on my map for a discussion about Melrose, Melrose Heights, Fairfax, etc. Melrose Heights is/was a subdivision in the area. I think Melrose Heights is not the same as Fairfax Business, thought they overlap. I don't know the exact bounds of the latter, but I would guess it would include Foothill and Bancroft since there are businesses on both.
