Regional/Local Planning Process

Southern Border Region LogoThe Southern Border Region (SBR) comprises Imperial and San Diego counties. SBR’s two workforce development boards, along with a range of partners, work together to create workforce development solutions that meet business and job seeker needs. Regional and local plans, informed by research and community input, lay out a collective sector strategy which guides SBR’s investments and activities.

SBR’s regional and local plans are updated every few years; October 2018 marked the beginning of the latest update process. To capture community input, the following meetings will be held on each planning topic.

Once input is captured, the plan will be updated and made available for public comment. Dates of public comment meetings will be posted no fewer than 10 days prior to the date of the meetings.
