Our Community

Brentwood is one of the fastest-growing cities in the nine-county Bay Area  – and offers a strategic location that connects: the SF Bay Area, Central Valley, Tri-Valley, and Sacramento Delta.  With the widening of Highway 4 and BART extension, Brentwood easily accesses the East Bay, yet it offers the affordable real estate and workforce of the Central Valley. 

Brentwood’s population (60,000 residents) includes a highly skilled workforce and robust community of entrepreneurs.  Yet Brentwood has maintained a small town, family-friendly culture.  It is set apart in a relaxed, scenic location famous for its family-owned farms, vineyards, creekside trails, and views of Mount Diablo.  Brentwood also offers: award-winning public schools, golf course communities and executive housing, high-end retail, many options for outdoor recreation, and a wide variety of attractive neighborhoods. 

Brentwood is proud of its fiscally conservative, business-friendly government – and the City has aggressive plans for economic development over the next 20 years.  Highlights include the $60 million downtown revitalization, retail developments such as “the Streets of Brentwood,” and office/industrial developments like Sunset Industrial Complex.
