Happy Holidays from Supervisor David Haubert


Greetings from Supervisor Haubert

Dear Friends,

I would like to wish you and your families a happy and safe holiday season! Now is the time to connect with family, reflect on the year, and give thanks to everything we are grateful for. Unfortunately, many of our community's unhoused residents will struggle with freezing temperatures over the coming weeks. In order to provide much needed relief, my office has coordinated with the Livermore Area Recreation and Park District (LARPD) and One Nation Dream Makers (ONDM) to establish a warming center at the Livermore Veterans Memorial Hall. Until April 30, 2023, ONDM will operate the warming center and provide a meal to unhoused residents from 6 PM - 8 AM at the Veterans Memorial Building located at 522 S. L Street in Livermore. The center will operate when overnight temperatures are forecasted at or below 45 degrees and/or a 20% chance or higher of rain. Thank you to Gloria Gregory and staff, LARPD, and ONDM for working tirelessly to protect our community. If you are interested in volunteering at the warming center or would like to learn more, please visit the website!

Remember to travel safely and always remain COVID-cautious! As always, if there is anything that my office can do to assist you regarding County-specific matters, please feel free to reach out at bosdist1@acgov.org

Holiday Canned Food and Toy Drive

Thanks to the generous donations from our community organizations, business leaders, and county partners, we were able to donate pounds of food and countless toys to families experiencing housing insecurity. The Second Annual District 1 Holiday Toy and Canned Food Holiday Party was a tremendous success, and tens of families across District 1 will have a better holiday season thanks to your support.

I am also excited to say that our First Annual Toy Drive in the City of Fremont was a huge success! Folks from Fremont showed up to share holiday cheer and brought toys to be donated to Abode Services for their clients and community. Thank you to Kathy Kimberlin, Fremont Flowers, Tri-City Nonprofit Coalition, Banter Bookshop, Comfort and Joy, The Fremont Podcast, and Mission Coffee Roasting Company for making the event possible. 


Sister County: Taoyuan


In an effort to collaborate with a county similar in size and character of our own, my office recently worked with the Global Friendship City Association to host government and business representatives from Taoyuan, Taiwan. The delegation included represenatives from the Taoyuan Department of Economic Development, Department of Public Works, Office of Public Construction, Department of Economic Development, and Taoyuan Aerotropolis CO., Ltd.

Not Feeling Well? Stay Home!

City Updates


The City is in the process of creating a short-term rental ordinance for Fremont, which would allow short-term rentals (STR) to continue to operate, while adopting regulations that fit the characteristics of the city and preserve community character.

On September 6, 2022, the Fremont City Council adopted the Street Racing and Sideshow Ordinance to prohibit the promotion of and attendance at these types of events.
