Economic & Community Development Alignment Plan - HB 2620

​Overview


Oregon state government is changing the way it supports economic and community development in local communities. We’re moving from a system where local communities adjust priorities to fit within existing bureaucratic structures to one where government adjusts its structure to support and address local priorities.  Oregon took its first steps towards this vision with the creation of Community Solutions Teams during Governor Kitzhaber’s first term.  In 2011, we moved closer by establishing 11 Regional Solutions Advisory Committees and 6 Regional Solutions Centers that bring together multiple state agencies, non-profits, businesses and citizens to foster collaboration and empower local decisions.
 
 
HB 2620 builds upon that work –requiring state leaders to develop a framework that further aligns state economic and community development programs to support the local priorities developed by the Regional Solutions Committees and local community leaders.  By prioritizing local outcomes over state org charts, empowering communities and increasing collaboration we can better match state investments with the unique needs and goals of communities across the state.  This fall, the Enterprise Leadership Team is working with Regional Solutions members and local community development practitioners to identify barriers and opportunities and the suite of programs to be aligned.  Based on our community engagement, the project will culminate in an action plan to present to the Legislature in 2014.
