The City recognizes that on-location filming is good business for the community and can have a positive impact on the local economy.
The film ordinance is intended to create a program for promoting economic development activity within Pittsburg and the vicinity of Pittsburg and the guidelines also help to establish protocol that will protect the personal and property rights of residents and businesses and will promote health, safety and welfare while filming is taking place.
The Pittsburg Economic Development Corporation believes that filming is a vital and important tool for economic development. The PEDC makes available $20,000 each fiscal year in incentives for films, commercials and tv series. Money is made available beginning Oct. 1 of each year.
