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 includes 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 made sure that the Alameda County community had 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 opened a 30 day public comment period during which all Alameda County residents and businesses were invited to submit their comments on the draft document of the Local Development Business Plan. Comments were submitted via email to EBCE staff. All comments were posted alongside the draft documents. During this open comment window, we held one or more webinars where the authors of the various background documents presented their work product and answered questions. All notices were 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 reviewed public comments during the process of finalizing each of the Local Development Business Plan background documents. The Local Development Business Plan team clearly documented any changes to the background documents made in response to comment to ensure that there is full transparency.
