decision to move to Fairfield.
Just as city officials were forward-thinking
in creating easy access to business parks, so
were they farsighted about expanding the water
infrastructure to ensure capacity for Fairfield’s
residents and businesses. Anheuser-Busch built
a brewery in the city in 1976, and that was the
driving force for the investment in the water
Fairfield created a partnership with the
neighboring city of Vacaville, resulting in the
1990 opening of the city’s second water treatment plant, North Bay Regional Treatment plant,
with capacity for both cities. The first plant,
Waterman Water Treatment plant, was built in
1975 and modernized in 2010, almost doubling
its capacity from 16 million to 30 million gallons
per day (mgd) and integrating new technology
into the treatment process.
As important as it is to recruit food manufac-
turers to the city, Fairfield’s economic develop-
ment team also realizes the value in business
retention and commits itself to visiting business
leaders on a regular basis. The goal is to pro-
vide them with critical information about pro-
grams through which the city can provide assis-
tance and incentives, including its business loan
program, availability of financing for building
fees and sewer fees, its sales-tax rebate pro-
gram for qualified businesses, utility incentives
and workforce training programs offered by the
State of California. One of those programs, ETP,
is a state-funded employee training assistance
program that provides funds to businesses to
offset the cost of employee training. The pro-
gram works to ensure that businesses will have
the skilled workers they need to remain com-
petitive. The Governor’s Economic Development
Initiative (GEDI) is another program of which
the city keeps businesses informed. It includes
sales and use tax exemptions, new employment
tax credits and income tax credits.
Fairfield officials see a bright road ahead
for its food manufacturing cluster because of a
business-friendly environment, available space
to attract additional businesses, its impressive
list of attributes, especially an ample supply
of water, as well as state programs to help
employers develop skilled, competitive workers.
All these elements combined make the city’s
economic development team confident that the
food manufacturing industry is a niche that will
continue to help the city grow and thrive into
the future. ◆
