Urban Habitat Current Issues Series: How Can Communities Shape Economic Development and Create Quality Jobs?

Wednesday | March 26, 2014 | 5:30 pm — 7:30 pm

East Bay Community Foundation, Conference Room | 200 Frank H Ogawa Plaza, Oakland, CA 94612

One of the keys to equitable economic development and creation of quality jobs is how we use land. Land use decisions drive everything from the type of jobs (service, manufacturing, tech) to quality of jobs, to environmental impacts. The panel will analyze successful campaigns and explore key opportunities and coalition models for major impact throughout the region. Equitable economic development and quality jobs are the result of making the right decisions on land use involving the community.

How do we move from localized thinking to a regional approach for workforce and economic development? How can advocates recognize opportunities?  What are the tools they can use to advance equitable development in their respective communities?

Space is limited, register online.
