Successful examples of cities bringing industry/manufacturing back to their communities?

From the Bay Area, most manufacturing growth has been clustered in the East Bay. The cities of Fremont/Union City/Hayward have done a good job of building around the TESLA facility, formerly NUMMI (Toyota/GM). There are also examples of cannabis driving light manufacturing in Nevada, Colorado, and Washington state.
