strong business, strong community

areas of focus

LOCAL
GOVERNANCE

Progress on local issues requires thoughtful collaboration between stakeholders from all sectors and especially our city and county governments. We believe community development solutions should be transparent, collaborative, well researched, and data-driven. 

INFRASTRUCTURE & TRANSPORTATION

Connection is key to the sustainability and growth of Santa Cruz County. Whether it’s broadband expansion, medical facilities, or micro-mobility programs, the SCCBC supports solutions that connect our community in more equitable and eco-friendly ways.

LOCAL ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT

With Silicon Valley to our north and agriculture to our east and south, Santa Cruz County’s location creates unique challenges and opportunities for local economic development. The SCCBC supports solutions that attract and retain talent, grow local entrepreneurship, and make Santa Cruz County a better place to live and work.

WORKFORCE 
HOUSING

You can’t live where you can’t work, and you can’t work where you can’t live. Creating more affordable housing is key to attracting new talent, bringing members of the local workforce closer to jobs, and increasing quality of life for Santa Cruz County residents.
