    The Pima County Workforce Investment Board will hear about Pima Prospers, the 10-year update of Pima County’s Comprehensive Plan at its monthly meeting on Friday, June 13.

    The Comprehensive Plan will be used to guide the region’s growth, conservation and community design for decades to come. It is to be truly comprehensive in nature addressing most services of the County.

    Based on input from residents at 14 community meetings, Tucson Meet Yourself and other events, and online at www.PimaProspers.com since early last October, staff members from across the County, led by the Planning Division of the Development Services Department, have compiled a first draft of the plan.

    Draft goals and policies are included for most plan sections. Public input is being sought at a series of open houses and online at www.PimaProspers.com. Additional elements on finance matters and the implementation program will follow in the next draft (expected around Labor Day).

    The goal is to bring the plan before the Pima County Board of Supervisors for public hearing and action in 2015.

    Carla Blackwell, deputy director of Development Services, will make a presentation about Pima Prospers to the Workforce Investment Board. She is expected to focus on the economic development and workforce elements of the plan.

    The meeting will begin at 7:30 a.m. in Rooms 109-112 at Pima Community College’s Community Campus, 401 N. Bonita Ave. It usually concludes by 9 a.m. and is open to the public.

    The Pima County Workforce Investment Board is appointed by the Pima County Board of Supervisors to provide recommendations on local workforce policy and oversight of the Pima County One-Stop Career Center. The board includes representatives of local businesses, nonprofits and educational institutions.

    One-Stop works with employers in local growth, high-demand industry occupations to address their current and future workforce needs.
