Announcing a Community Meeting: Our Vision of the Northern Waterfront

two_futuresIf you live in Contra Costa County, you may have heard of a massive effort called the Northern Waterfront Economic Development Initiative (NWEDI), which aims to re-industrialize the coastline along the Carquinez Strait. It’s more likely you have not 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 in a community meeting to learn about the current plan from county leaders, and then hear from community residents and organizations advocating for an alternate vision that protects our environment, promotes renewable energy and sustainable businesses.  Community Meeting Saturday, August 15 10 am to 1 pm Nick Rodriguez Community Center 213 F St, Antioch, CA 94509  Lunch will be served, so advance registration is required.

Please register here. Event is sponsored by the Sierra Club and the Bay Area Refinery Corridor Coalition (BARCC). For more information call 925-709-4295 or email
