City Wins Google Award as the
2014 California Digital Capital !!



 Google has named the City of Emeryville as the “digital capital” of California, singling it out for having the “strongest online business community” in the state.

The Google eCity Awards honor, “the strongest online business community in each state”. Google worked with an independent research firm to analyze the online strength of local small businesses in cities in all 50 states and determine the leading cities in the digital economy. A variety of factors were reviewed to determine the leading cities and towns across the U.S., including the likelihood of small businesses to have a website, use a blog, promote themselves on a social network, sell goods directly from their Web pages and whether they had a mobile-friendly website. The winning cities exhibited strong engagement and potential for growth within the digital economy.

Public Safety Alerts 

Sign Up Today for Code
 – Emeryville’s FREE Automated Notification System for Emergencies and More!

The CodeRED system is a free web-based automated notification service that sends personalized voice, email, text, and social media messages.  CodeRED will be  used for emergencies,, such as evacuation notices, missing child alerts, and post-earthquake or other disaster instructions   But, you can also sign up to receive automatic notices for public meeting, community events, and other non-emergency community outreach initiatives.
CodeRED works primarily through free subscription so please sign-up today and notify your friends/family/neighbors about this service.  Subscribers determine delivery modes (landline, cell phone, voice, text, email, social media) they want to receive for emergency notices as well as whether the subscriber wishes to receive non-emergency notices.  CodeRED will automatically send emergency messages to 911 landline phones without prior subscription (but you must subscribe to receive any notifications by cell phone, email, or text).  Emeryville residents, businesses, and visitors can subscribe to the system.  CodeRED also offers a geo-aware mobile alert app that can be downloaded by anyone working or travelling through the Emeryville or other CodeRED enabled cities for notification of emergency alerts.  The City will be able to target notifications by geographic area (such as radius or blocks), street address, and residence vs. business addresses; or by special lists to avoid sending out notifications to those not in an affected area.

The November 11 meeting is canceled as City offices will be closed to commemorate Veteran’s Day. The next regular Emeryville Oversight Board meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, December 8. 

However as the former Emeryville Redevelopment Agency’s business winds down, some scheduled meetings may be canceled due to the Board not having any current business to discuss.  The City will post notices on the City’s website and notice boards if any scheduled meetings are canceled on the Friday before the scheduled meeting is due to occur (the public can also contact the City Clerk’s Office  or by calling  510-450-7800 to confirm meeting dates).
