What would you do as Governor of the Tri-Valley?
Innovation TRIVALLEY Leadership Group (ITV) wants your vision for our region in the year 2040 before the community comment period ends.

Last year, Innovation Tri-Valley Leadership Group and the Bay Area Council Economic Institute embarked on a project to create a vision for the future of the Tri-Valley and has been asking stakeholders to discuss housing, transportation, education, and the future of innovation in the region.

When the process went virtual in March, young leaders, arts and culture groups, nonprofit executives, tech executives, elected officials, healthcare, communications and education leaders have come together online to share bold ideas for how our region could look in the years ahead.

Car-free zones, granny flats and more higher learning institutions have all been suggested. If you were the imaginary Governor of the TRIVALLEY for a day, what are your ideas?
