A new chapter
We’re now a single organization focused on strengthening the region’s economy, with the EVC carrying forward under the umbrella of REACH.
“We live, work, play and care for people across the many diverse communities of the Central Coast. The REACH 2030 plan crosses the same boundaries that we do every day with a vision to ensure the next generation has the ability to thrive here.”
“While the people and communities of the Central Coast are unique, the challenges we face are not. Coming together as one region will allow us to solve big challenges, realize big opportunities and speak with a united voice to state and federal government.”
“Reach 2030 is a bold, ambitious plan to drive job creation on a game-changing scale.”
“As someone who immigrated here, I’m excited about the doors this organization opens for the next generation to find the kind of opportunity I’ve found to thrive on the Central Coast.”
