The Countywide Vision took a major step forward this morning when the San Bernardino Associated Governments Board and County Board of Supervisors approved the first two regional implementation goals developed through the Vision process, targeting cradle-to-career success and the creation of a business-friendly environment.
The goals emerged from meetings between experts and stakeholders representing the elements of the Countywide Vision and were honed by city, town and county leaders during the annual City/County conference in March. The element leaders will now meet again to set a course for achieving the goals through collaboration with residents and other stakeholders.
One goal calls for partnering with all sectors of the community to support the success of every child from cradle to career. The other goal adopted today calls for the establishment of San Bernardino County as a model in the state where local government, regulatory agencies and communities are truly business friendly.
“These goals reflect discussions that took place within several of the element groups,” said San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors Chair Josie Gonzales. The county and SANBAG have coordinated the development and achievement of the Countywide Vision.
“Groups representing education, healthcare, and jobs and the economy have emphasized the need to guide young people from an early age into career fields that will benefit the county community,” Chair Gonzales said. “Groups representing the environment, housing and jobs and the economy have emphasized the need and the opportunity we have to be a model of business-friendliness in a state that is perceived to be hostile to business.”
