2030 Jobs Plan

Thank you for taking the time to familiarize yourself with the draft STL 2030 Jobs Plan – a detailed and specific roadmap for driving the growth of quality jobs while reducing racial and ethnic disparities in income and wealth. The draft plan is based on an assessment of the St. Louis region’s economic and industry strengths together with input from a diverse group of hundreds of community, business, nonprofit and economic development leaders. International economic development expert Bruce Katz, of New Localism Associates, conducted the research and guided the plan’s development. Civic Progress provided funding to support this community planning project.

Now we need the broader community’s feedback on the draft of the STL 2030 Jobs Plan. That’s where you come in. Please take a few minutes to tell us what you think. Feel free to be candid and direct with your comments and suggestions. Thank you.
