HAYWARD, Calif., July 27—The City of Hayward announced today public release of its new State of the City video highlighting innovation in local government, transformative new investments in housing and city advances in environmental conservation.

Debuted at the annual Hayward Chamber of Commerce State of the City luncheon, the video features the city’s nationally recognized Firehouse Clinic, Hayward-based Eden Housing’s new Alta Mira Senior and Family Apartments adjacent to the South Hayward BART Station and city leadership on renewable energy at generation the Hayward Water Pollution Control Facility.

It also celebrates creative expression at Hayward public schools by incorporating into the video narration excerpts from a poem, titled One Day, by Kashish Vinayak, a Bowman Elementary student and City of Hayward youth poetry award-winner for 2017.

The video can be reached by using this link to the City of Hayward YouTube channel.

Opened in November 2015, Firehouse Clinic is a trailblazing partnership of the City of Hayward, Alameda County Health Services Agency and Tiburcio Vasquez Health Center, Inc. that is bringing new primary and preventative medical services to South Hayward.

Eden Housing’s Alta Mira Senior and Family Apartments is considered a model of blended for-profit and affordable residential development.  It is being followed by hundreds of millions of dollars of new residential projects now in the development pipeline in Hayward.

The city’s Water Pollution Control Facility, explored at the end of the video, was recognized by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency as a Green Power Leadership Award winner by going from being a net energy user to a net energy producer through co-generation strategies and an investment in a 1 mega-watt solar array.
