Ever wonder what your BIA is doing for you? Look no further than this article in PublicCEO.com for answers. PublicCEO.com is an online magazine for California city managers, county administrators, public executives and elected officials, and an article posted yesterday describes the Riverside Economic Development RED TEAM's efforts to identify ways to minimize the economic downturn and transition to recovery through increased job opportunities in the construction industry.
In the article, Scott Mann, a Menifee City Councilman, describes how development impact fee reductions helped stimulated economic activity in his city "without a doubt."
A sample of the quotes from our own CEO, Mark Knorringa:
"This isn't to build homes so much as create jobs," Knorringa said. "We're just trying to get some people back to work and turn this thing around."
