A shelter-in-place order is in effect for all Alameda County residents. City facilities are closed and non-essential meetings and events are cancelled.  Find more information here.

The Arts & Green Festival has been cancelled. City staff and event organizers agreed the event had run its course. The past few years have had low attendance and the event took a lot of staff/volunteer time for not a lot of community interest. The City is still very interested and invested in promoting art and green awareness…however we intend to adjust the type of events we offer in the future to better fit the needs of the community.
