THE CITY OF ALAMEDA
The city of Alameda is a 10.6 square mile island community located in San Francisco Bay. Alameda is just seven miles east of San Francisco, and less than one mile west of the City of Oakland.  Alameda is a diverse community with a population of approximately 79,000.

The City provides a broad range of services to the community including police and fire protection; construction and maintenance of streets, parks, storm drains and other infrastructure; recreational and cultural activities, including a golf complex comprised of two 18-hole championship golf courses and one nine-hole executive course; and general government and administrative support services. Additionally, the City provides power to residents through its electric utility, Alameda Municipal Power (AMP).

According to Money Magazine, the City of Alameda compares favorably to the "best places to live" in America. That is, in part, due to the small town feel of this Bay Area island community. It also has a high median family income, a large number of educational institutions nearby, more than double the number of restaurants and libraries as the "best places average," excellent air quality, and better than average weather.
