Economic Development Strategic Plan
The Economic Development Strategic Plan (EDSP) will be the City’s roadmap to achieving economic growth, while at the same time improving the quality of life of Alameda residents and employees. The City's last EDSP was adopted in January 2008. Among other things, the previous EDSP led to the restoration of the Alameda Theatre, the development of Alameda Landing, and the redevelopment of Bridgeside Shopping Center, now anchored by the Nob Hill supermarket.
At the City Council meeting of July 5, 2016, the City selected Strategic Economics as the consultant to prepare the plan. Strategic Economics will work with the community to understand their economic development concerns and interests, and to help guide the discussion about what is feasible in Alameda with respect to economic development.
EDSP Communitiy Survey
The City of Alameda encourages local residents and businesses to take an online survey about the future of economic development in the City. Please share your thoughts by completing a brief survey, available online at: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/AlamedaEDSP
Survey responses will be accepted until end of day Friday, March 10, 2017.
