SAN BERNARDIN0 – The San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors and the county’s transportation planning agency on Wednesday adopted the first set of goals for a 20-year vision plan to improve the quality of life in the county.

During a special meeting at the Santa Fe Train Depot, the board met with officials from San Bernardino Associated Governments, or SanBAG, to briefly discuss the goals, targeting cradle-to-career success and establishing a business-friendly atmosphere in the county, before moving to adopt them.

The goals were established following a series of meetings between the county and community stakeholders, i.e. employers, faith-based organizations, educators and government, in January and February. Discussion centered on eight elements and how they could be improved upon to ensure sustainable communities.

Groups were subsequently established to represent each element of the vision plan: education, environment, healthcare, housing, infrastructure, jobs, public safety and water.
