If you live in Contra Costa County, you may have heard of a massive effort called the Northern Waterfront Economic Development Initiative, which aims to re-industrialize the coastline along the Carquinez Strait. However, it’s more likely you might not have heard about it, since it has been operating mostly behind closed doors, with minimal input from local residents. Launched in 2013, this initiative is an economic development revitalization “framework” led by Supervisors Federal Glover and Mary Piepho, and targets the towns of Hercules, Martinez, Concord, Pittsburg, Antioch, and Oakley, as well as unincorporated waterfront cities. Join us for a meeting to learn about the current plan from county leaders, and then hear from community residents and organizations advocating for an alternate, sustainable vision towards clean air, water and soil, renewable energy and sustainable businesses. RSVP is required and a light lunch will be provided. Organized & Sponsored by Bay Area Refinery Corridor Coalition, and the Sierra Club SF Chapter.
