FREMONT, Calif. (KGO) -- ABC7 took our Building a Better Bay Area initiative to the streets of Fremont, California this week.
BUILDING A BETTER BAY AREA: Fremont Town Hall
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.
BUILDING A BETTER BAY AREA: Fremont's housing solutions
ABC7 also focused on celebrating the diversity woven throughout the Fremont community. And ABC's "Localish" uncovered the hidden gems of Fremont, from tasty restaurants to must-see sights and experiences.
A special event kicked off the week, ABC7's Building a Better Bay Area: Fremont Town Hall, hosted by ABC7 and Washington Hospital Healthcare System.
ABC7 News Anchor Kristen Sze moderated the conversation along with ABC7 News contributor and SF Chronicle insider Phil Matier.
The conversations were focused around Fremont's economy, quality of life, and the challenges they are facing with housing, transportation, workforce and overall life. Watch the event here.
