Evaluation of the Strong Cities, Strong Communities (SC2) Teams Pilot: Final Report. A4.2.3 Local and State Partners


The SC2 team worked with local partners, such as Wells Fargo, the Fresno Economic Opportunities Commission, the San Joaquin Valley Regional Broadband Consortium, and the Downtown Fresno Partnership (the downtown Business Improvement District) to help align and connect ongoing local efforts with the mayor’s work plan for the SC2 pilot. With these partners, the city and the SC2 team worked on expanding Fresno’s value-added food sector, furthering neighborhood revitalization, improving Fresno’s broadband access, and revitalizing downtown.

Somewhat uniquely, team members also partnered with staff from California’s Strategic Growth Council in the Office of Planning and Research. The Council’s deputy director worked closely with the Fresno-based team members to align and maximize SC2 team activities in light of the state’s sustainability efforts and high-speed rail activities.
