County to look at diversifying Solano economy

Solano County has a chance to study creating a more diverse economy that depends less on defense expenditures at Travis Air Force Base.

A $369,000 federal grant is available for the study. The county Board of Supervisors will vote Tuesday whether to accept the money. It looks to be an easy decision – the item will appear on the board’s consent calendar, which is reserved for items likely to be noncontroversial and require no discussion.

A county report said the study will assess:

- Industry clusters in the county and how much these clusters rely on and benefit from the base.
- Solano County’s work force and its ability to meet the demands of a more diverse economy.
- Work force leakage, which is local residents taking their talents to other regions.
- Potential opportunities to further diversify the county’s economy.

Finally, the study is to recommend a course of action.

If the Board of Supervisors grants it approval Tuesday, the county will look for a consultant to do the study. Results should be available in about 18 months.
