Building A Better Bay Area: Focus On Fremont

FREMONT, Calif. (KGO) -- ABC7 is taking our Building a Better Bay Area initiative to the streets of Fremont, CA, the week of Nov. 18, 2019. How is Fremont "building a Better Bay Area?" That's the question we're working to answer.

We've embedded reporters in Fremont for the last month. The issues there are similar to those all Bay Area cities are facing, but Fremont's approach to finding solutions is unique.


Despite some debate among Bay Area residents, Fremont is located in the East Bay. It's in south Alameda County, nestled around Silicon Valley. It's big, both by geography and population.

The city was officially formed in 1956, and is now extremely diverse. It's also a hub for tech manufacturing.
