Transition Committee Moves Foward

Economic Development Transition Committee Moves Forward

The economic development transition committee, the group tasked by the board of county commissioners with reviewing and making recommendations on the future of economic development in Santa Rosa County , met for the second time on Monday, Feb. 13.   At the meeting, the committee unanimously approved a motion to keep the current corporate structure of TEAM Santa Rosa , EDC. The recommendation would permit the economic development organization to seamlessly continue its mission as the committee reviews the organization. TEAM Santa Rosa will continue to work with current and prospective employers to bring job opportunities to Santa Rosa County . The recommendation will be forwarded to the Santa Rosa Board of County Commissioners for approval.

 Also at the meeting, Jim Hizer, President/ CEO of the Pensacola Bay Area Chamber of Commerce, spoke to the group on how regional marketing efforts may be improved and maximized. While some level of partnership was well received, the committee took no formal action at the meeting.

On Jan. 26, the Santa Rosa County Board of Commissioners appointed the 15 member transition committee in hopes of strengthening economic development efforts. The committee is currently scheduled to meet on Monday Feb. 20, 27 and Mar. 5 at 3 p.m. in the commission board room located at 6495 Caroline Street in Milton . The meetings can be view online during or after the meeting at .
