About Us

Located 55 miles east of San Francisco, the City of Brentwood is a charming and desirable
community for residents and businesses alike. Incorporated in 1948, Brentwood is
located in the far Eastern Contra Costa County region of the San Francisco Bay Area. The
community has a long and storied history in agriculture and farming production. That
tradition continues today even with the residential growth the City has experienced over
the last several years. In the late spring and summer months, area farms are brimming with
agri-tourists seeking out the latest stone fruits, corn and cherries.

The City's incorporated boundary currently totals 14.8 square miles (9,502 acres), with a
sphere of influence totaling 17.4 square miles (11,129 acres).

The City provides a full range of services including Police, Parks and Recreation, Public
Works, Economic Development, Planning, Building, Code Enforcement, Engineering and
Inspection, Housing, and General Administrative Services. The City of Brentwood receives
fire protection services from the East Contra Costa Fire Protection District. The City operates
public water and wastewater utilities, as well as providing refuse collection and disposal,
and a recycling program.
