In 2004, communities in the western unincorporated area of Alameda County (known as the "Eden Area") came together to identify, discuss, and debate the most important issues facing their communities, and to develop a collective vision of livable communities and a prioritized set of actions. The first phase of the Eden Area Livability Initiative (EALI) spanned the period from 2004 to 2012, and the second phase of EALI was initiated in 2012. Community-led Visioning Groups and a Blue Ribbon Steering Committee were tasked with developing and prioritizing goals related to five topics of community concern: Agriculture & Environment, Economic Development, Education, Governance, and Public Safety & Realignment. These goals were put to a community-wide vote at a Charrette, and will be advanced through working groups and priority projects. These reports describe the process of the Eden Area Livability Initiative and the outcomes of Phases I and II of the Initiative.
