Mayor's Welcome

Greetings from the City of Martinez

On behalf of the City Council and the citizens of the City of Martinez, I invite you to discover, visit, enjoy and make your next move to Martinez. Martinez is a strategically located historic waterfront community nestled in the beautiful rolling hills and valleys of Central Contra Costa County. Martinez is also home to a variety of residential neighborhoods ranging from “turn of the century” Victorians and bungalows to modern homes with suburban amenities, excellent schools, attractive and popular parks and a historic downtown – all with easy access to the Bay Area, Sacramento and beyond by freeway, commuter rail and water.

We are about to complete a $30 million dollar parks and library improvement project that rebuilt the municipal aquatic center, renovated the downtown library and every park and sports field in the City. Our downtown is now one of only two in all of Contra Costa County to offer a free Wi-Fi network, and we became one of the first cities in the County to install 240V electric vehicle charging stations for public use. A diverse mix of new and successful businesses have opened in the past two years, and the future looks promising with the potential development of large scale cornerstone properties on the horizon.

The City is also moving forward with developing a long-term vision for the City’s marina and waterfront, expansion of the intermodal train station, increased use of the City’s waterfront amphitheater, and a significant investment in local infrastructure including streets and parks. In addition, opportunities abound for new commercial and industrial opportunities along the Interstate 680 and Highway 4 corridors, particularly along an area of North Pacheco potentially available for annexation into the City in the near future. We are going places and invite you to come with us for a prosperous adventure.

With Warmest Regards,
Rob Schroder, Mayor
