A meeting of the (currently ad-hoc) Economic Development committee happens tomorrow at 6:30pm in the media room on the 3rd floor of 1100 Wilshire. (Update: I had originally written that this was called for tonight.) Special items on the agenda include:

  • Discuss mission statement and survey of community to determine what economic development and other needs of our communities are. Action item.
