After over a year of crafting and refinement, the County Board of Supervisors formally approved the Economic Vitality Study and Economic Development Vision & Strategy at their November 18th meeting. What initially began as a single “strategy” document, evolved into what is now being termed as a Study, along with a companion piece, the Vision & Strategy. The Study outlines the broad framework for the County’s future efforts in both stimulating their own, and supporting other economic development efforts. The Vision & Strategy details how the County’s work will be conducted, including a specific work plan, a proposed structure for the soon to be established Economic Development Department and various collaborative efforts that will be undertaken with external stakeholder groups.
SCCBC staff is in the process of reviewing both the Study and Vision & Strategy. Once our review is complete, we will be posted analysis here. Please check back for updates.
