Inform Economic Development Strategic Plan
In March and April, approximately 100 community members attended
three public workshops focused on development of a
five-year Economic Development Strategic Plan for the City.
At the workshops, participants viewed presentations on plans to
expand access to broadband internet in SLO, innovation at Cal
Poly, and the way the SLO life drives economic vitality for
residents. The discussions focused on topics to attract and
retain quality jobs, including: leveraging broadband to support
economic development; expanding our regional transportation
system and other transportation options; preparing
infrastructure for future growth; and promoting SLO's cultural
and recreational opportunities through a community brand.
The last public workshop will be held on Thursday, June 21 from
6:30-8:30 p.m. in the Library Community Room. This final
workshop will include a review of the proposed strategies that
were developed with the input received at prior workshops.
