Clif Bar moving to Alameda

I was pleasantly surprised to hear Alameda pulled out all the stops and offered many incentives for Clif Bar. As reported in the Chronicle:

In addition, Alameda lured Clif Bar with its access to renewable energy, ample parking and public transit, and a building big enough to accommodate an extensive solar-panel system. Workers will also be able to send their children to Alameda public schools, even if the parents don’t live in Alameda.

I am not sure how the city is going to handle the logisitics of (non-Alameda resident) Clif Bar employees sending their kids to Alameda public schools. I reckon the school district will have this all figured out in due course 🙂

Clif Bar (annual revenue: $150m; 150 employees) will relocate to Alameda Landing in 2008.
