Proposed Charges

Note: These proposed charges were intended to give the workgroups a starting point from which to organize their work. We expect that some workgroups may expand upon their charges and/or coordinate with other workgroups to avoid duplicative processes or work product.

Charter: Article VII Charge:

The focus of this work group is to explore ways to connect people residing in the County to the efforts of County government to enhance economic growth and competitiveness, including those that: 
  • Create opportunities for people to contribute to the economic growth and competitiveness of the County.  For example,
    • as human capital to maintain a strong talent pool that will attract and retain businesses to the County,
    • as our current and future small business owners and entrepreneurs
  • Create opportunities for people to participate in the economic growth and competitiveness of the County.  For example,
    • preparing them to compete for jobs now and in the future,
    • raising the educational attainment level of County residents,
    • fostering racial and economic inclusion for County residents by combating the barriers of poverty and segregation
  • Create quality places for people to live work and play throughout the County.  For example,
    • stabilizing and revitalizing neighborhoods (e.g. housing, foreclosure prevention, land use and planning, transportation, amenities, recreation, and health care)
    • preserving the City of Cleveland as the vibrant, urban core of the County   

For the above area of focus, the work group will:

  • Review existing operations, initiatives, strategies, and investments of the County itself and those the County undertakes in cooperation with other public, private and non-profit partners
  • Review local and national best practices that might help the County leverage its existing resources, direct its spending to achieve greater cost efficiencies and return on investment, attract new state and federal funding, and align and connect its work with other public, private and nonprofit partners
  • Offer recommendations for a framework for the County‚Äôs five-year Economic Development Plan related to the actions to be carried out by the County itself and those the County undertakes in cooperation with other public, private and non-profit partners
  • Offer recommendations for organizational and operational structures and processes that will enable the County to effectively implement the recommended framework for the five-year Economic Development Plan and related programs and activities of the officers, departments, agencies, boards and commissions of the County
