Community Workshop: Planning for a Healthy Economy in Alameda


The city of Alameda encourages local residents and businesses to attend a community workshop Thursday, Sept. 22, at 6:30 p.m. on creating a citywide Economic Development Strategic Plan (EDSP).

The workshop will take place in the Alameda High School Cafeteria (entrance on Central Avenue at Walnut Street) and will be an opportunity for community members to hear about and join the public discussion about how Alameda will maintain and grow its vibrant local economy. 

The EDSP will be the city’s long-term (five- to 10-year) roadmap for business attraction, retention and workforce development activities, while improving the quality of life for Alameda residents and employees. Discussion topics include job and industry growth trends, performance of retail, restaurants, offices and industrial parks and opportunities for strengthening the local economy.

For more information about the EDSP, contact Eric Fonstein, Development Manager, at 747-6895,, or visit strategic-plan.
