The Northern Waterfront Economic Development Initiative was created to revitalize the northern waterfront of Contra Costa County stretching along San Pablo Bay, the Carquinez Strait and into the Delta. In January 2019, a Strategic Action Plan was approved by the County Board of Supervisors in order to give life to the initiative.
The initiative leverages existing competitive advantages and assets by focusing on advanced manufacturing in advanced transportation fuels, bio- tech/bio-medical, diverse manufacturing, food processing and clean tech. There is also a related component focusing on the human capital framework to benefit the residents of the Northern Waterfront.
