Economic Development Strategic Plan

The City's Economic Development Strategic Plan lays the groundwork for targeted business attraction, branding & marketing activities, and the development of key catalyst and opportunity sites throughout the city.

Economic Development is more than just infrastructure, jobs and buildings. It is a pathway to self-sufficient neighborhoods and a fiscally sound city. As the Bay Area economy expands, it's important that Hayward is recognized for its assets and regarded as a true partner to our business community. Our Economic Development Strategic Plan is a purposeful, concentrated effort to achieve this vision with a focused use of City resources. Our strategy seeks to spur catalytic projects that will cascade to the broader local economy while bolstering City revenues.
