The county's economic recovery planning will happen in two separate phases. The first phase will determine short-term actions for 21 business and organizational sectors to help with immediate recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic. The second will be an update of VISTA2025, the countyâ€™s economic development plan, which will include goals and longer term actions for various implementers.
To complete the first phase, the county has created a survey to help understand the needs and concerns of local businesses and organizations. The survey is available until October 11, 2020.
After the survey results are analyzed, a review of state and national recommendations is completed, and focus group meetings are held, lists of short-term actions for recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic will be provided on this website. These will include overall actions and specific actions for 21 business and organizational sectors, with actions focused on recovery over the next six months.
