The Valley Prosperity Partnership would like to extend a special thanks and recognition to all those who have contributed their time either in person or by phone to this planning effort as part of the process. Their input has been instrumental in moving this action agenda forward and will continue to be so as we begin to implement the plan. We look forward to adding to our ranks in the coming years.
