community benefits of these large
infrastructure projects. A recent
economic study commissioned by
the park district found that they not
only support the community, but
also directly support the local economy and jobs beyond park staff.
The East Bay Regional Park District
Improvement Projects Economic and
Social Impact Analysis (tinyurl.com/
bh8zj5f7) by Beacon Economics
identified large infrastructure projects to have direct, indirect and induced benefits. Direct benefits are
derived from immediate spending
by the park district's construction
and future day-to-day operations of
project sites. Indirect benefits stem
from the spending contractors and
supplemental services expend in
support of completing a park district

project. Induced benefits come from
the spending by those households associated with externally contracted
work on a park district project. It is
how they spend their income in the
community. The report also quantifies the number of jobs created by job
years. A job year equals one year of
employment for one individual.
The analysis provided estimates
for 93 upcoming green infrastructure projects. The one-time impact
for these projects would be $214.4
million in economic output, 1,199
job years of employment, $107.1
million in labor income, and $25.4
million in tax revenue. Annually, the
completed projects support $23.7
million in economic output, 131 job
years, $13.4 million in labor income
and $3.6 million in tax revenue.

Investing in Our Future
Community and elected official
support help make bonds, grants
and taxes possible to establish funding that supports the completion of
projects. The funding approved by
East Bay voters goes directly back
into the local economy in the form
of jobs, economic output and taxes. That, in turn, bolsters community support for the park district. It
is a cycle of support, funding, project delivery and positive user experience that will bind the East Bay
community with its regional park
district for years to come.
Erich Pfuehler is Chief of Government and Legislative Affairs
for East Bay Regional Park District (EBRPD) (epfuehler@

Management Analyst for EBRPD (baldinger@ebparks.org).
