Community Economics

  • To gain an understanding of the Tri-Valley regional economic setting
  • To gain an understanding of local public finance
  • To gain insight of state government actions on local communities

With Community Economics, class participants will gain a basic level of understanding of the building blocks of a community, and the connection between governmental decision-making, land use, and the influence of community economics. They will learn how community services are financed and understand the trade-offs that become necessary given limited resources.

“There is no better way to learn about your community than through Leadership San Ramon Valley.”
