On Tuesday, October 21, 2014, the County Board of Supervisors approved the third and final component of Live Well San Diego, the Thriving Strategy Agenda. This strategy focuses on cultivating opportunities for all people and communities to grow, connect, and enjoy the highest quality of life.
Thriving focuses on Built and Natural Environment; Enrichment; and Prosperity, Economy and Education. Within these broad focus areas, the County and community stakeholders have developed goals and strategies to work on transportation, built environment and neighborhoods, housing, natural environment, civic life, community activities, and workforce and economic development.
Over the last year, more than 100 community and County stakeholders worked together to create a plan that would develop a more Thriving San Diego region –building community awareness and cohesion, filling gaps and ensuring equal access to basic needs, and exceeding basic needs. Thriving strives to engage, connect and allow San Diego residents to flourish. With this vision in mind, the team created the goals, strategies and actions that are the basis for the final component to Live Well San Diego – Thriving.
The Thriving plan promotes stronger collaboration and coordination throughout the region among all stakeholders. It embodies a stakeholder-driven approach from start to finish including planning, prioritizing and implementing. Implementation requires leadership, participation and action from all sectors of the community including public, private, philanthropic, and non-profit organizations.
