Ambitious Agenda in Cincinnati
Earlier this month in Cincinnati launched a sweeping new regional action plan, Agenda 360. The plan's ambitious goals are to "create 200,000 net jobs in the 15-county region by 2020; add 150,000 young professionals to the work force by that time; and ensure that every household earns at least 250 percent of the federal poverty level." Myrita Craig, formerly the V.P. of small business and programs at the Cincinnati Regional Chamber of Commerce, has been named executive director of the Office of Agenda 360, which will be housed at the chamber to oversee implementation of the plan and report progress to the community.
Incidentally, Myrita Craig is currently participating in the ACCE/Ford Foundation Regional Sustainable Development Fellowship. For more information on this educational opportunity from ACCE click HERE or call Ian Scott at ACCE.
