SUISUN CITY — City Council members next week will discuss Suisun City’s economic development strategies in a post-redevelopment environment.
The focus will be on completing an assessment of the city’s strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats relative to economic development, according to the agenda for Tuesday’s council meeting.
The idea was suggested by the city’s economic development ad hoc committee, comprised of Councilmen Mike Segala and Mike Hudson. The two suggested three main steps. The remaining are building a consensus around a vision for new development in the city, and developing an action plan to facilitate implementation.
“Attracting development and private sector investment to a community like Suisun City involves selling ourselves – our potential and our vision – proactively and reactively,” city staff said in a report to the council.
As part of the discussion, city staff is also asking the council to offer feedback on desired business types by area of the community, and other public projects or activities to support new business development.
The council will also be asked to adopt two resolutions:
Council will meet in closed session at 5:30 p.m. to discuss anticipated litigation with legal counsel. The regular meeting starts at 7 p.m. Both are in the council chambers, 701 Civic Center Blvd.
