Socio-Economic Indicators - There is a lack of a central repository of key socio-economic indicators. Working collaboratively with the Town of Truckee, community, and stakeholders we will identify, measure, and track key socioeconomic indicators that have a direct correlation with Truckee brand loyalty and economic strength. This will be valuable to business owners, public sector, investors who are making decisions, and those marketing their business. Join us and BECOME AN INVESTOR.
Truckee Tomorrow is an economic development initiative led by the Truckee Chamber of Commerce in partnership with the Town of Truckee and public/private partners dedicated to the well-being and vibrancy of Truckee. Join the individuals and organizations that are creating and embracing change that will benefit our community for generations to come.
Originating in 2010 on the heels of the recession, Truckee Tomorrow facilitated four facilitated community meetings to begin the dialogue of working together as a region to identify economic opportunities, challenges, and projects.
In 2013, the group of civic and community leaders were brought together to discuss economic development strategies to pursue. The group consensus was to pursue the creation of a Truckee brand and implementation of a place-based marketing effort that would create a centralized website providing live, work and play information.
Upon securing funding, the Truckee Brand Identity project began along with the creation of the new Truckee.com website focusing on economic, community, and visitation. This Truckee Tomorrow Phase I project was launched in 2015 and completed in 2016.
Truckee Tomorrow Phase II is now poised to begin. With the Brand as the platform, this next phase will focus on “The Trilogy of Economic Development Initiatives” including Business Speaks, Quality of Life, and Socio-Economic Indicators.
The Truckee Chamber of Commerce has been a community pillar for over 100 years. The community has depended on the Chamber to be a catalyst for change, convener for business, and champion for a stronger business community. The health of our business community and the health of the larger community in which it lives are inextricable. Providing what business needs to succeed is central to the success of the community as a whole.
The Truckee Chamber will be seeking partners that want to create and embrace change that will benefit the community for years to come. For more information, contact Lynn Saunders, President/CEO at 530-587-8808 or e-mail Lynn@Truckee.com. Join us now and BECOME AN INVESTOR.
