Project Rebound: A Blueprint for Economic Resiliency and Reinvention in the Greater Charlottesville Region
6/26/2020

Project Rebound, a local economic recovery initiative for Charlottesville and Albemarle County, released A Blueprint for Economic Resiliency and Reinvention in the Greater Charlottesville Region," a report that maps out recovery action steps for the business community.

 
The recommended actions are based on data from stakeholder meetings and follow-up interviews with more than 300 local participants who identified health & safety concerns, an uncertain business environment, and confusion over guidelines as some of the confidence barriers to economic recovery. 

 
The Blueprint identifies six priority areas for immediate action to bolster confidence and boost the economy, while appropriately reflecting current public health realities: 

 
(1) authoritative safety protocols
(2) trustworthy information sharing and ways to access resources
(3) facilitating access to testing
(4) working with government on emergency policies
(5) continued inclusive conversation
(6) a buy-local initiative.

 
Over the next several weeks, Project Rebound will convene further conversations to help determine next steps and bring attention to solutions already underway. Local organizations are invited to host a presentation and discussion of the Blueprint. Those interested should contact connect@cvillechamber.com or call the Chamber at 434.295.3141.
