Piedmont Is Home

Piedmont is Home Logo


The City of Piedmont is a small and diverse community located approximately 10 miles east of San Francisco. Piedmont is completely encircled by Oakland and has no opportunities for annexation. For most of its history, Piedmont’s “landlocked” setting has influenced its development patterns and significantly affects its potential for new housing and employment today. Virtually all of Piedmont is fully developed at residential densities on par with neighboring cities. More than 90% of the land is developed with housing and 9% consists of schools, parks, and churches. Piedmont has less than 4 acres of commercial land. The largest employers are the Piedmont Unified School District and the City of Piedmont municipal organization. The City has no industrial land and no Planned Unit Development zones. New home construction since 1980 has averaged just one to two units a year. Piedmont has a very small supply of rental housing, consisting of approximately 50 conventional apartments, and approximately 300 accessory dwelling units.

Many of Piedmont’s vacant lots are constrained by steep slopes, narrow streets, or inadequate street frontage. The City’s commercial acreage supports about two dozen active businesses and ancillary storage uses. The City Charter requires a citywide election for the reclassification of land.
