ECONOMIC VALUE ATLAS
The Economic Value Atlas (EVA) is a project led by Metro that seeks to establish tools and analysis that aligns planning, infrastructure, and economic development to build agreement on investments to strengthen our regional economy. The EVA coordinates between GP2020 and Metro’s 2040 Growth Concept and Regional Transportation Plan and creates bridges between desired outcomes of local concern and regional economic development aspirations to outline a path forward to pursue actions that help secure these outcomes.
EVA aims to impact the following:
- Supporting local business and growing industries
- Creating connected, livable communities with access to family-wage jobs
- Building economic opportunity for all
TECH TALENT STRATEGY PLAN
The Technology Association of Oregon (TAO), in coordination with the Columbia-Willamette Workforce Collaborative (CWWC) is convening a diverse group of tech employers from across our region to develop a Talent Strategy Plan.
This initiative brings together workforce development, tech companies, and education and training providers in a collective action to address opportunities and gaps in the talent pipeline so that each of our individual companies can complete and thrive.
