Santa Cruz County Draft Economic Vitality Strategy

Dear BCBA Members and Members of the Community,

  There was an important correspondence from the county soliciting feedback on a report that discusses economic vitality in Santa Cruz County.  This report will influence the time, efforts, and resources allocated from local government to different industries and areas in the entire county.  The report will be a major influence for local government and other agencies actions over the next two years, and also influence the 35 year plan.  Without doubt, this will have impact on our businesses and area.  This report suggests there is a small window of time for the county to revisit the report and make additions/changes.  The BCBA would like to draft a formal letter including the ideas that are presented from our members.  After reading the document, please email all feedback that you would like to share to the BCBA at info@bcba.net, or if you prefer, directly to your county supervisor.
Thank you for attention to this important document.  We look forward to your feedback.

 

 

Justin Acton

 

President, Boulder Creek Business Association

 

 

Subject: Santa Cruz County Draft Economic Vitality Strategy

 

 

Dear Members of the Boulder Creek Business Association:

 

 

Santa Cruz County Board of Supervisors directed that an Economic Vitality Strategy be developed for the County of Santa Cruz. The process involved preparation of an Economic Trends Report, and six interactive focus group workshops with our economic development partners in the cities and business groups, such as Boulder Creek Business Association. Possible approaches and strategies for addressing our community’s economic opportunities and challenges were then presented at four community workshops as well as an “Open Town Hall” on the County’s website.

 

 

The resulting draft strategy is to recognize countywide assets, opportunities and partnerships and to highlight goals, strategies and actions that County governmental agencies can pursue to complement and strengthen the economic development efforts of existing businesses, agencies and organizations.

 

 

Your feedback and ideas and important.  The attached draft of the study  being circulated for review and comment until July 7.  Comments should be submitted to the Planning Director, either by postal service at 701 Ocean Street, 4th Floor, Santa Cruz CA 95060 or by email to PLN001@santacruzcounty.us.  I am interested in receiving a cc of your email comments as well bruce.mcpherson@santacruzcounty.us.

 

 

Your organization may also be interested in a presentation on the Economic Vitality Strategy by County Economic Vitality Staff. If so,, please contact my office or Economic Development Coordinator Barbara Mason at Barbara.Mason@santacruzcounty.us.

 

 

The Economic Vitality Strategy is scheduled to return for the Board of Supervisor’s consideration and discussion in August.

Santa Cruz Mountain Business Girls

SCM Business Girls

SCM Business Girls is a networking and support group designed for women in business in the Santa Cruz Mountains. The group is set up with a laid back, no commitment style that is easy to be a part of. So instead of the normal women’s business group with members and an extensive rule book, SCM Business Girls is different.

All business women in the Santa Cruz Mountains are welcome to attend anytime, whether it be regularly or on a drop-in basis. Regular attendance is recommended in order to receive the maximum benefits of the group, but as working women we live diverse and busy lives. We juggle kids & families, our career, community activities, our significant others, and the list goes on. In other words, we want to promote our business and make connections with other professionals, but we can’t be glued down to rigid rules and memberships that cramp our busy life-styles.

Want to check it out?
Drop-in for coffee and an hour of business networking every Thursday morning from 9-10 starting April 25, 2013 at the Felton Satellite Telework Center. Bring your business cards and start your day being inspired, energized, and supported by women in business just like you!
