Two years into the City of Long Beach’s 10-year blueprint for economic development, the Economic Development Commission will provide an update on milestones met thus far at a meeting on Tuesday, April 30 from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the City Council Chambers.
The Commission, city staff and partners included in the blueprint will present 20 updates on progress made to date on programs, initiatives and activities, according to Economic Development Project Manager Eric Romero.
The mission of the blueprint is to create economic opportunities for workers, investors and entrepreneurs.
The city approved the blueprint in 2017, prioritizing business expansion, attraction and retention. The plan includes seven focus areas — engines of growth, economic inclusion, jobs and workforce development, business assistance, development environment, quality of life, and economic leadership and cooperation — with more than 80 recommendations on development and an implementation plan.
