Rolling out the Resilience Roadmap
Draft plan open for feedback
A united San Luis Obispo/Santa Barbara County economic strategy is close to fruition, with a draft now available for public comment.
Shaped by a 30-person strategy committee with input from more than 400 cross-sector stakeholders, the Roadmap targets growth from within, laying out dozens of actions
around career pathways, innovation, housing and more.

- Tune in to presentations about the plan at tomorrow’s Board of Supervisors meetings for San Luis Obispo (at 1:30 following closed session; agenda item) and Santa Barbara (about 11 a.m.; agenda item)
The Resilience Roadmap is designed as a community-catalyzing project, with implementation by multiple organizations and multiple partnerships across the two-county region over the next five years.
Comments will be reviewed and incorporated as determined by the Strategy Committee, which will then submit the Roadmap for federal approval, which is expected in early 2024. In the meantime, REACH is working to finalize economic impact reports, research and strategies for the region’s target industries and expanding career pathways. We look forward to sharing more on this in coming months.
