El Cerrito Joins the East Bay Green Corridor Partnership

The San Francisco Chronicle reported today that El Cerrito, along with Albany, is joining the East Bay Green Corridor Partnership, which is an effort to make the area a hub for green business.

"The 12 partners will contribute $10,000 each and hire a staff member who'll be based at the East Bay Economic Development Alliance office in Oakland...they've also snagged a federal budget earmark worth $147,000 for job training and are optimistic that other funding requests will soon be granted."

There's a good link to a report on the East Bay's green economy at the bottom of the article.
