President's Message

On behalf of the Discovery Bay Community Services District Board of Directors, we thank you for the opportunity to represent and serve the citizens of our town.  Discovery Bay is a Special District, not a municipality.  We have jurisdiction over water, wastewater, lighting, landscaping, parks, and recreation services.

Our Town is located within the unincorporated jurisdiction of Contra Costa County.  Land use, roadway maintenance, storm drain upkeep, public works, and law enforcement services are provided by the County.  Fire protection services are provided by the East Contra Costa Fire Protection District.  Levees are maintained by Reclamation District 800.   Although we do not have control over these services, Town staff can often assist in helping you contact the appropriate agency to address any concerns you may have.

As a Board, we strive to make Discovery Bay a community that people are proud to call home.  Our goal is to deliver quality water and wastewater services at a reasonable cost, provide a variety of recreational programming that targets all age groups, and to provide family parks with a vast mixture of amenities.  We invite you to visit the Community Center and enjoy the dog park or a game of tennis or pickleball.  We anticipate being ready for swim season with a newly renovated pool.  Landscape upgrades are underway at various locations around Town. 

Discovery Bay takes great pride in being at the forefront of strong fiscal responsibility, having effective sustainability practices, open transparency, and having a professional dedicated staff.   We hold the “District of Distinction” certification at the “Platinum Level.”    Out of over 2,300 Special Districts in California, only 12 have been awarded the Platinum Level of governance.   

We are committed to effective communication with our residents.  Helpful information can be found on the Town Website www.todb.ca.gov; stay engaged by signing up to receive email blasts by clicking "Join our mailing list" below; visit our Community Center Facebook page to learn about upcoming events and programming https://www.facebook.com/Town-of-Discovery-Bay-276427029053724/ ; and watch for electronic sign board alerts on Discovery Bay Boulevard.   Provide your input through “Contact Us” at https://www.todb.ca.gov/contact-us or attend and provide comment at our Board and Committee Meetings https://www.todb.ca.gov/board-meetings

Working together is what makes Discovery Bay the premiere “live where you play” community.
