REPORTS AND INFOGRAPHICS

The Initiative began with a the first coordinated effort to collect direct data from manufacturers in the four largest cities in the Bay Area: San Francisco, San Jose, Oakland, and Fremont, on the topics of workforce, business practices, supply chain connections, real estate challenges, and most importantly, to uncover the opportunities for Bay Area cities to collaborate. In 2017, we partnered with JLL to publish Bay Area Manufacturing is Here to Stay, an infographic that gives an overview of manufacturing in the entire nine-county Bay Area.

MANUFACTURING TOOLKITS FOR CITIES

These toolkits are how-to-guides. They are meant to give city staff, policy makers, and partner organizations concrete tools and strategies to support manufacturers on two topics. The first toolkit covers Manufacturing Promotion and Engagement and the strategies in it can be used to increase interest and excitement around manufacturing. The second focuses on Industrial Real Estate and the strategies strategies it describes can be used to grow industrial real estate, protect it, and keep places to make affordable.

CANNABIS PRODUCTION

In 2016 the Initiative collaborated with the Urban Manufacturing Alliance to create a webinar titled How to Balance Cannabis Production Within Your Industrial Community at the request of our partner cities. The webinar featured Tyler Bump, a Senior Economic Planner for the City of Portland, and Jill Jennings Golich, Deputy Director of Community Planning and Development at the City and County of Denver and David Mendoza, a Senior Policy Advisor in the Office of Policy and Innovation at the Seattle Mayor’s Office.

OPPORTUNITY ZONE

In 2018, BAUM developed this webinar to help economic development practitioners understand how they and their communities can leverage Opportunity Zone Investment Funds to preserve and create affordable industrial space, and support the industrial businesses that call their areas home — while at the same time preserving the character of the neighborhoods and promoting inclusive development strategies. We heard from George Ashton, Managing Director of Strategic Investments at Local Initiative Support Corporation (LISC), and Kevin Wilson, Partner at Novogradac & Company.
