About Piedmont

The City of Piedmont is a primarily residential 1.7 square mile Charter City with approximately 11,000 residents, located in the beautiful Oakland Hills, overlooking the San Francisco Bay. Aptly named “Piedmont,” or “foot of the mountain,” its most distinct features are gardens, bridges, parks, and schools that create a special sense of place.

Today, ambitious efforts are underway to usher in Piedmont’s vision for the future. Accessible and participatory local government are centerpieces to the City’s approach. Practicing good governance, advancing Piedmont’s quality of life, becoming a more diverse, inclusive, welcoming community and addressing the regional housing crisis are priorities.

Extraordinary and generous residents are the heart of Piedmont. Residents partner with the City team to deliver community events throughout the year. This community spirit infuses enthusiasm for all aspects of civic life in Piedmont.
