Given the changing public health guidance in the Bay Area, which includes recommendations from both Santa Clara and San Francisco Counties, SPUR is suspending its in-person public programming events. During this time, public programs will be postponed, canceled or converted into a webinar on an event-by-event basis. This event will be held as a webinar. For more information and a webinar link, please register below.
The Central Valley may seem a world away from the Bay Area, but it serves as a critical gear in the daily operation of our region. Each morning, thousands of cars flood the freeways, bringing workers and goods westward. As housing costs in the Bay Area continue to increase, more Californians may find themselves part of this same routine. At the same time, many cities across the Central Valley have taken charge of their economic future, luring employers and jobs — and residents — east. Come learn about the important role that the Central Valley will play in the Bay Area of the future.
