The City of Newark is located in southern Alameda County at the east end of the Dumbarton Bridge, midway between Oakland and San Jose. We were incorporated in 1955 and have a five member City Council/Manager form of government. Our city is approximately 13 square miles with a population of just under 50,000. At the edge of Silicon Valley, growth of biotech, high-tech, and health sciences industries In Newark continue. We take pride in maintaining a small-town feel, while undergoing major housing and retail development projects.

The City has evolved throughout the years from its days enriched in agriculture, manufacturing, and railroad transportation to today’s expansion of high-tech, biotech, and the health sciences, primarily as a result of the development of Silicon Valley.  Although Newark has grown significantly, the community prides itself on being able to keep a small, hometown charm.
