Federal-Local Partnerships to Implement Place-Based Economic Development

Posted on: September 9th, 2013 by Alexandria Murnan

This session occurred on August 26, 2013 at the Annual Training Conference in San Francisco, CA.

Place-based economic development harnesses the distinctive assets of a town, city, or region—especially its built and natural assets—to strengthen economic competitiveness, create jobs, and build wealth while preserving what makes the place special. Over the past several years, federal agencies have been working with local and regional leaders to apply this concept. Participants explored how place-based economic development strategies have been implemented in the City of Fresno, CA and its surrounding region through the Strong Cities, Strong Communities program, and examined how this work could be expanded and enhanced in the future.

  • Matt Dalbey, Deputy Director, White House Council on SC2
