Hometowns and Headquarters: Growing an Industry Locally
Commonwealth Club - Lafayette Library and Learning Center
The California Center of the Milken Institute recently published a report that provides a platform to help public officials and business leaders chart a brighter future for Contra Costa County. The county is the third largest in the Bay Area and boasts a mature industrial base that generates more than $50 billion in annual sales. In the 1990s, Contra Costa was one of California’s most productive counties with wages to match. However, into the new millennium, lower-paying jobs have grown more rapidly than higher-paying ones, leading to increasing wealth disparity. The Milken report presents a multi-pronged and strategic plan for creating widespread prosperity in the county while also addressing the needs of the regions job creators and industries. Recently commissioned by the Contra Costa Economic Partnership (CCEP), steps are being taken to incorporate these findings into the future development of individual cities and the county as a whole. Don’t miss the opportunity to hear from key leaders on next steps toward growth in Contra Costa County.
