Economic Prosperity: Framework for Action


February 27, 2019: In 2018 the Greater Sacramento Economic Council, Sacramento Metropolitan Chamber of Commerce, Valley Vision, and SACOG partnered with the nationally-recognized Brookings Institution to complete a candid, data-driven look at the six-county regional economy. Building from this work, the regional Prosperity Partnership has now released a framework for near-term action that bridges the broad findings from the recent Brookings Institution assessment with tangible steps to advance growth, prosperity, and inclusion.

The framework argues that preserving the region’s quality of life and reversing the downward trajectory of the last decade demands a renewed focus on the key factors of regional competitiveness and a shared commitment for targeted, near-term action that responds to the strengths, weaknesses, and vulnerabilities identified in the Brookings assessment. 

Using this framework as the roadmap, SACOG is currently working with its partners to complete additional research, analysis, and stakeholder interviews targeted to the findings of the Brookings assessment. The work will culminate in the Prosperity Strategy to build advanced industries, human talent, and inclusive regional economic growth.
