The City of Dublin is situated in the East Bay of the San Francisco Bay Area, approximately 35 miles east of San Francisco and 30 miles northeast of the Silicon Valley. Dublin has emerged as a dynamic, thoughtfully planned community with a population of nearly 73,000. Home to a mix of quality housing, an excellent range of retail and commercial entities, and two pedestrian-oriented transit districts, the City is poised for continued prosperity. The community also maintains its small-town character and has become increasingly diverse. Dublin’s strong business climate, high performing schools, planned neighborhood developments, and award-winning parks and facilities have contributed to a high quality of life for residents and businesses.
