Valley Partnership’s October Friday Morning Breakfast will feature Glendale Mayor Jerry Weiers on its panel, along with Phoenix Mayor Kate Gallego and Mesa Mayor John Giles, for a discussion about growth, transportation, business attraction and expansion, and recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic.
The zoom webinar is scheduled for 8 a.m. Friday, Oct. 23 with guest registration available online at the Valley Partnership website.
Local governments across the Valley have transitioned to virtual meetings, call-in public comment sessions, and increased remote inspections, while demand for new home approvals, industrial projects, and others continue to rise. Hear from West and East Valley leaders on their state of growth in their cities.
“The current health pandemic has significantly impacted our cities and towns, yet many of our leaders implemented strategies to mitigate the economic harm,” Valley Partnership president and CEO Cheryl Lombard stated in a news release. “Valley Partnership has worked closely with our local partners to ensure projects were not delayed and that businesses were aware of any operational changes that may impact licensing or inspections. This increased communication and collaboration has allowed our industry to continue to operate and maintain quality jobs.”
