Local Development Business Plan
The Local Development Business Plan (LDBP) is intended to develop a comprehensive framework for accelerating the development of clean energy assets within Alameda County. The Local Development Business Plan will include a description of how EBCE can contribute to fostering local economic benefits, such as job creation and community energy programs.
The LDBP identifies opportunities for local power development, explains how to achieve EBCE’s community benefits goals, and provides employment and labor standards for adoption by the EBCE Board of Directors. The Local Development Business Plan includes the following sections:
- Section I: Early Actions for Local Development
- Section II: Supporting Resources, Policies, & Strategies
- Section III: Ongoing Analysis, Implementation, & Refinement
The Local Development Business Plan consultant team has driven the process of developing drafts chapters of the Local Development Business Plan, and we want to make sure that the Alameda County community has every opportunity to weigh in. Over the course of the last several months, we have posted draft chapters from the Local Development Business Plan for public review and comment. When a background document is posted, we open a 30 day public comment period during which all Alameda County residents and businesses are invited to submit their comments on the draft document of the Local Development Business Plan. Comments should be submitted to LDBPcomments@ebce.org. Comments shall be no longer than 5 pages. All comments will be posted alongside the draft documents. During this open comment window, we will hold one or more webinars where the authors of the various background documents can present their work product and answer questions. All notices will be circulated to EBCE’s email list, the Community Advisory Committee and the EBCE Board of Directors.
EBCE staff and the Local Development Business Plan consultants review public comments during the process of finalizing each of the Local Development Business Plan background documents. The Local Development Business Plan team will clearly document any changes to the background documents made in response to comment to ensure that there is full transparency.
