San Francisco’s economic strategy 2.0

From SPUR:

In 2004, San Francisco voters passed a resolution requiring San Francisco to update its economic development strategy every three years. The first strategy was completed in 2008, before the worst of the current recession. As we recover from the recent economic challenges, what industries are leading that recovery? How will this affect the City’s budget outlook? Join the strategy’s lead author and San Francisco chief economist Ted Egan, and director of the Office of Economic and Workforce Development Jennifer Matz, whose staff will be tasked with implementing the strategy’s recommendations.
