Central Coast Voices: A community-driven plan for economic recovery and job creation

The Central Coast Economic Recovery Initiative (ERI) is a set of policy concepts, program ideas, and proposals to stimulate post-pandemic economic recovery and long-term vitality on the Central Coast, focusing on housing, clean energy, and infrastructure investment. Community members and stakeholders are encouraged to provide input on goals and objectives in the ERI, to date the initiative is supported by a growing coalition of elected officials and community leaders, and all members of the Central Coast community are invited to join this effort.

Join host Kris Kington-Barker as she speaks with guests involved in the creation of the Central Coast Economic Recovery Initiative (ERI) and others, Andy Pease, author of the ERI and San Luis Obispo (SLO) City Council Member, Eric Veium, author of the ERI and Chair of the SLO Climate Coalition, Dr. Erin Pearse, Director of the Institute for Climate Leadership and Resilience at California University Polytechnic, San Luis Obispo, and Anne Wyatt, Director, Tiny Housing Consulting & Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU) SLO and co-chair of the SLO County ADU Task Force. They will discuss the proposed Economic Recovery Initiative meant to support a thriving Central Coast economy where all residents have access to affordable housing, good-paying jobs, and a high quality of life.

You are invited to listen, learn and participate in the conversation, between 1-2 pm. Call in and be part of the discussion at (805) 549-8855 or email questions to voices@kcbx.org.
