Planning for our Future

The County sponsors programs to expand economic development and create new jobs for years to come, as well as address important ecological issues such as rising sea levels.

Northern Waterfront Economic Development Initiative

The County is partnering with the cities of Hercules, Martinez, Concord, Pittsburg, Antioch, Oakley, and Brentwood to create more jobs along the County’s Northern Waterfront.  You can learn more about this project here.

Adapting to Rising Tides

The County and local stakeholders are working with the Bay Conservation and Development Commission to understand how water levels may rise along our vast shoreline, and what we can be doing and in the future to plan for challenges and opportunities this creates. Phase 1 of the project was completed in 2016.  Phase 2 is commencing now.
