Building a Better Bay Area: Fremont

FREMONT, Calif. (KGO) -- ABC7 took our Building a Better Bay Area initiative to the streets of Fremont, California this week.

The ABC7 News team was embedded with the community to share stories that make up the diverse region known as The Gateway to Silicon Valley.

Like most local cities, Fremont has its challenges and is finding solutions as more people strive to live in the Bay Area. ABC7 aimed to bring those solutions to light and connect them with the local audience, empowering viewers to learn more and to take action where they can.
