Orange County’s strong economic outlook has fueled continued job growth and investment, yet there remain challenges in the areas of housing affordability, the workforce skills gap, and children’s health and wellbeing, which require increased attention.
The release of the annual Orange County Community Indicators Report serves as a catalyst for discussion and assessment of the opportunities and challenges influencing Orange County’s future economic growth as well as its ability to maintain its quality of life. This in-depth report includes key trends to guide the discussion of what is necessary for Orange County to continue its important regional economic role in the future.
On September 2, the Orange County Forum is pleased to feature our distinguished guest panelists for what has historically been a lively discussion of the Community Indicators report and what it means for the future of Orange County. Each attendee will receive a copy of the Orange County Community Indicators Report publication.
Christina Altmayer, Executive Director of the Children and Families Commission of Orange County, will participate on the panel during the luncheon program. The Commission is one of four project sponsors in the production of the report that tracks countywide trends related to the economy, income, housing, education, health, safety and infrastructure. The 2015 report was presented at the July Commission meeting and is available on the Commission website. It was restructured to focus on three pivotal issues impacting Orange County: housing; children’s health and wellbeing; and the opportunity gap between high and low-income families.
