SLO launches econ development effort
San Luis Obispo County officials are about to launch the most comprehensive economic development effort since city fathers wooed California Polytechnic University to the Central Coast more than a century ago.
The effort is being co-chaired by County Supervisors Frank Mecham and Adam Hill and a broad coalition of businesses working with the San Luis Obispo-based Economic Vitality Corp. or EVC. A steering committee of 40 to 50 business and community leaders has signed on to the effort.
“Economic development strategies are not a quick fix to anything but we’re very committed,” to the project, Hill said in an interview with the Business Times.
