City of San Leandro Economic Development Strategy

Oct 26th, 2023

The City of San Leandro is in the process of updating its Economic Development Strategy that will:

  • Articulate a clear vision and pathway for economic development, in line with San Leandro City Council policies;
  • Assess San Leandro’s strengths, weaknesses, and opportunities for high-quality job growth and business development;
  • Organize the City’s economic development resources and efforts in the most efficient and effective way possible;
  • Develop programs to help all San Leandro businesses, including groups who historically have been underserved or faced discrimination; and
  • Expand the City’s status and visibility in the Bay Area development community.

In September 2023, the San Leandro City Council approved a consulting contract with Strategic Economics to develop the Strategic Plan. Click here to read the City Council staff report on the selection of Strategic Economics.
