Tri-Valley Cities Legislative Framework
The City of Livermore also joins its neighbors to advocate for issues and funding at the regional, state, and federal levels. The cities of Livermore, Dublin, Pleasanton, San Ramon, and the town of Danville develop an annual Tri-Valley Cities Legislative Framework with five to six topics. These topics overlap items in the City's platform, and provide another opportunity for advocacy progress and success.
