The mission of the City of Pittsburg’s Economic Development Department is to provide resources to the business and development communities with the purposes of attracting, retaining and expanding employment opportunities for area residents, stimulating the local economy and expanding the local sales and property tax base, while maintaining a positive balance between growth, social equity and the economy.
Pittsburg Business Community
At the heart of the our business attraction and retention efforts, is the clear understanding that the best way to attract and retain businesses in a community, is to create and maintain a strong and positive business climate. The City maintains close relationships with the members of its business community, the Pittsburg Chamber of Commerce, Contra Costa Industrial Association, Contra Costa Council, Economic Development Alliance for Businesses and Contra Costa Economic Partnership. These relationships create a supportive network that facilitates communication and cooperation among all parties. The Economic Development Department works hand-in-hand with members of the business community, acting as a personal advocate, providing the support and assistance necessary to create and nurture a successful business environment.
Pittsburg offers a Recycling Market Development Zone Program to eligible businesses, offering profitable incentives including attractive loans, marketing funds, technical assistance and more. We encourage you to contact the City’s Economic Development Department to find out more about the numerous programs available to assist eligible businesses located within the City of Pittsburg.
Whether a small business owner or a large box retailer, the City of Pittsburg is here to assist you.
