Recently the U.S. Census Bureau named Dublin as the fastest growing city in California by percent of population change between July 1, 2017, and July 1, 2018. Also, since 2010, Dublin’s population has increased by over 37%. Dublin’s growth in the past decade, as well as changes in the Bay Area region, have required the Public Works Department to adapt to these changes, while striving to maintain a high level of service to the community. This presentation will provide an overview of the methods, programs, and tools the Dublin Public Works Department is using to keep up.
