The City of Piedmont is a community of approximately 11,500 residents located in the beautiful Oakland Hills overlooking the San Francisco Bay. Piedmont is virtually built out and consists of established quiet, tree-lined streets. Characterized by a stable, well-educated, and engaged population, Piedmont is comprised of long-time residents as well as an influx of younger families bringing an increased diversity to the community. Although the city has a small commercial district, Piedmont is almost entirely zoned for residential use and relies primarily on property and voter-approved parcel taxes. A significant portion of the city is located in canyon areas with urban/wildland intermix.
