Town OKs Tri-Valley Vision 2010 funds

Last month the Danville Town Council OK'd spending $25,000 to help fund the Tri-Valley Vision 2010 Project in the fiscal year 2006-07. The Tri-Valley Business Council was formed in October 1994 to represent the private sector in regional matters that affect the economic vitality within the Tri-Valley. Members come from businesses and organizations in Danville, San Ramon, Dublin, Pleasanton and Livermore.

The Business Council works with governments and communities to resolve issues by doing research, tracking public policy and participating in public hearings.

Danville has supported the Business Council and the Vision 2010 project since 1998 with funding of $10,000 per year until 2005-06 when the contribution was increased to $25,000. This was in part because the organization lost the support of the Irvine Foundation.

This year the Business Council is focusing on responding to the needs of home-based business executives in the Tri-Valley, by marketing businesses, creating a Web site, and providing networking opportunities. Other focuses will be workforce housing and traffic congestion.
