Carpinteria Valley Chamber of Commerce Hosts ‘State of the Community’ Breakfast

Speakers discuss how businesses are weathering the economic climate

The annual State of the Community, hosted Tuesday by the Carpinteria Valley Chamber of Commerce at Rincon Beach Club & Catering, was opened with a greeting by Lynda Weinman, owner of Lynda.com and executive sponsor of the event.

The breakfast, attended by 150 Carpinteria business leaders, featured Carpinteria Mayor Al Clark, First District county Supervisor Salud Carbajal and Carpinteria City Manager Dave Durflinger.

Those in attendance were pleased to hear about the city of Carpinteria’s ability to weather the current storm of economic uncertainty, by hanging on to its reserves, partnering with the CVCC and other community groups to feature needed projects, securing various grants to assist with infrastructure and innovative public services, and implementing a conservative spending plan.

Carbajal noted that Carpinteria has the lowest unemployment rate in Santa Barbara County.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
