Mayor Bailey Challenges Riversiders to Create Value for Future Generations Chamber Convenes Leaders to Promote City’s Future Growth

Part of the movement is already in place through the Chamber-championed Streamline Riverside. Technology upgrades and enhanced customer service through the One Stop Shop, the third floor of City Hall, contributed to a 19% increase in development valuation last year alone. The 19% equates to $330 million infused into the economy due to serving 22,000 customers in the first six months.

At the State of the City Address, Mayor Rusty Bailey highlighted how Riverside can and will continue to “Create Value for Future Generations” to enhance the quality of life for all. The City of Riverside joined the Chamber to host more than 1,100 business leaders, residents, and students to share Mayor Bailey’s vision for 2018. Riverside has had an incredible year of successes with an even brighter future. The City is no stranger to engaging local students of all ages and setting them up for success. Mayor Bailey said, “Thank you superintendents, principals, teachers, presidents, and chancellors - our city is grateful to you for taking care of, shepherding, and inspiring the next generation of Riversiders. You are the tip of the spear toward creating value in this city for future generations to come.” One of the most promising initiatives to create value and boost economic development in Riverside over the next decade is the Riverside Innovation District. The Chamber fully supports this initiative and looks forward to its launch later this year. This movement

“The bottom line with our One Stop Shop is that Riverside will be the fastest and most convenient city to start and build your business,” said Mayor Bailey. The Innovation District also serves as a catalyst for individual and collective efforts in the See Mayor on page 8

will prepare residents for the jobs and lifestyle of a sustainable “smart” economy of the future.

Task Force Defends Businesses, Worked to Lower Proposed Rate Increases City Council Voted 5-2 for Conceptual Approval of Modified RPU Rate Proposal The Chamber, business leaders, and Riverside Public Utilities (RPU) made significant strides towards a revised and lowered proposed water and electric rate increase while maintaining reliability and affordability for users.

The voice of the Chamber and business leaders were heard by RPU as they lowered their proposed rates increases while also maintaining reliability for ratepayers.

Successful collaboration lead to RPU’s refreshed utility rates which now reflect a much lower increased percentage. After a recent Chamber task force meeting where they reviewed the available data and discussed the goal of balancing rate increases while maintaining reliability, the Chamber took a position to support the current reduced rate proposal. The Chamber has asked RPU to continue to seek efficient operations in addition to conducting annual reviews in order to maintain transparency and mitigate future rates. At the secondary joint RPU and City Council workshop, City Council voted 5-2

for conceptual approval of RPU’s revised utility rate increase proposal. Before the current reduced rate proposal, the Chamber’s Board of Directors opposed the original utility rate proposal. The current modified rate proposal lowers the electric rate increase from 4.8% to 3.0% and water rate increase from 8.6% to 5.7% (on average annually over five years). The Chamber’s task force voiced “4 R’s” of priorities to RPU regarding the proposed rate See Successes on page 2

Chamber and City Tackle Homelessness Challenge with Housing First New plan to develop 400 housing units on the horizon The Chamber and the City collaboratively seek a long-term solution to homelessness in the City of Riverside. The Housing First Initiative proposal addresses homelessness with a unique approach. The initiative would provide permanent housing first, thus allowing social services including medical, psychological, and educational assistance to help each individual work towards life stability. The business community is convening with the City to assess sites and determine the final list for development. In a solutions-minded effort to address a top priority voiced by the business community, the Office of Homeless Solutions with the City of Riverside has released the Housing First Draft Plan to develop approximately 400 permanent supportive housing units to meet the current 389 Point-In-Time Count of unsheltered homeless in 2017. Locations for the proposed housing units will be narrowed down to two to three locations per City Council Ward. The policy and operations of each Housing First facility include developing positive community support systems, professional operation and case management staff at each location, and professional property management. The Riverside region is stepping out in a preventative way to address critical quality of life challenges such as homelessness. The See Housing on page 7

Chamber is Setting Goals to Continue Riverside’s Job Growth The year is off to a great start and the business community is very optimistic about the future in Riverside. With growth throughout the city and increased jobs anticipated for the region, the Chamber continues continue to find ways to strengthen and grow our local economy. During the Annual Board Conference last month, we were able to vocalize the priorities for the coming year. The day resulted in discussions and group break-outs which provided a clear direction for the Chamber in order to enhance their impact and continued value to Riverside. We have the opportunity to collectively strategize and set objectives for job creation, community development, enhancing the quality of life for residents, and continuing to advocate strongly at local, state, and federal levels. These goals were set with the mindset of how to best serve our member businesses and the business community. Additionally, the Chamber’s biggest networking event of the year, the Mega Mixer & College Internship Fair at the Galleria at Tyler was extremely successful. With over 70

“We have the opportunity to collectively strategize and set objectives for job creation, community development, enhancing quality of life for residents, and continuing to advocate strongly at local, state, and federal levels.” Finally, Mayor Bailey reminded us of why Riverside continues to be a great place to live, study, work, and play at the 41st Mayor’s State of the City Address. It was exciting to

hear about the great successes celebrated in 2017 and how the city continues to create value for future generations and make a big difference in our community. Mayor Bailey encouraged each attendee to step out and create value through the many opportunities by investing in property or starting a business in the Innovation District, adopt a school in your district, hire a neighbor without a home, mentor at-risk youth, and so much more – all of which would create a great future for Riverside and the next generation. The Chamber looks forward to the possibilities of 2018 and the continued, collaborative efforts to highlight the community, improve the quality of life, and strengthen our local economy.

UCR Economist Cites Solid Job Growth in Inland Southern California Dr. Robert Kleinhenz from the University of California, Riverside School Business Center for Economic Forecasting and Development addressed business leaders at Good Morning Riverside about the economic progress of Riverside, California, and the United States as a whole. Job growth in the region this past year has surpassed just about every other area of California, which is great news for local businesses looking to grow. California’s unemployment rate is down to 4.6%, the lowest it has been since the year 2000. Inland Southern California is adding jobs faster than the rest of the counties in the state and country, which means more jobs are available to Californians than in any other state. Inland Southern California continues to be a leader in job growth in all industries but specifically in construction, leisure and hospitality, and technology. These statistics are important for Riverside’s colleges and universities as they prepare current students for the workforce and ensure they are providing the correct courses for students entering the job market. From a nationwide perspective, gross domestic product (GDP) has increased by approximately 2.2% in 2017 and is predicted to grow by another 2.5% or more in 2018. Compared to a GDP of -6% in 2009, the economy in California and the country has improved tremendously that creates a higher demand for jobs.

Successes… Continued from page 1 increase and requests the following: 1) Reduce rate increases on businesses and residents for 2018 while maintaining reliable service; 2) Revise all cost projections for the utility to ensure they reflect the most current and accurate information; 3) Re-prioritize projects to identify those that are more immediately necessary versus less urgent and longer term investments; and 4) Develop a five-year rate plan with annual review. The Chamber has requested regular meetings with RPU to discuss the progress of proposed projects. RPU’s timeline of progress includes

updating rate schedules based on revised revenue requirements and effective dates in February, a Public Hearing before the Board of Public Utilities and City Council consideration of the rate recommendations in May, and initiating the finalized rates effective July 2018.

Chamber Opposes Legislation with Unfair Tax; Stops Bill that Burdens Employers The Chamber’s Board of Directors voted to oppose SB 623, as it would have a negative impact on local businesses by imposing a fee, or tax, on water meters. In a success for the business community, the Legislature recently halted a Chamber-opposed bill, AB 5, which would have limited work opportunities for unemployed workers and burdened employers with unfair scheduling mandates.

Top funding priorities in the Governor’s proposed budget includes education, transportation, tax credits for businesses, and the Rainy Day Fund.

Governor Brown’s 2018-2019 Budget Proposal Sees Funding Increases Across the Board California Governor Jerry Brown recently issued his budget proposal, which projects an increase in spending for programs and services, including the California Competes Tax Credit program, K-12 and higher education, and transportation infrastructure. Furthermore, the $131.7 billion budget aims to invest in the state’s Rainy Day Fund to ensure the long-term strength and sustainability of California’s economy. The California Competes Tax Credit program, which helps businesses grow their bottom line and reduce overall expenses, is set to expire this year. The 2018-2019 budget proposal extends this program for an additional five years, providing $180 million in credits annually. Regarding K-12 education, the budget utilizes nearly $640 million from Proposition 51

bond funds to construct and modernize the state’s schools facilities. In addition, new Career Technical Education centers will be built, better preparing the future workforce of scientists and engineers. Higher education also receives a boost in funding, seeing a total increase of nearly $900 million over the previous year.

SB 623 applies sliding scale costs to consumers based on the size of a water meter. Larger businesses would be disproportionately affected by this bill, as they often require larger water meters in their place of business in order to operate effectively. Furthermore, there is no connection between the payment of fees and the beneficiary of the program.

AB 5 (Gonzalez and Kalra) Employers: Opportunity to Work Act AB 5 required an employer, who may operate many facilities across the state, to contact employees at each facility and offer them available hours of work prior to hiring new employees. This is not only burdensome for employers, many of whom employ thousands of workers, but it is geographically unlikely that workers would have traveled across the state to accept the additional hours of work. Moreover, this bill would have discouraged the hiring of unemployed individuals, potentially prolonging the individual’s unemployed See Bills on page 7

With the passage of SB 1 in 2017, California is set to receive approximately $55 billion in transportation infrastructure funding over the next 10 years. The 2018-2019 budget channels over $4.6 billion of this new funding for a number of transportation initiatives.

Business Leaders Identify Priorities for the Chamber in 2018 Employers, business owners, entrepreneurs, and managers representing a broad crosssection of industries gathered recently at the Chamber’s Annual Board Conference to set a vision for 2018. Stepping up from previous years, the board outlined specific priorities to hone in on for the upcoming year such as, strengthening the connections between employers and community college pathways, protecting local military bases, and partnering with local entities to attract new industries and economic drivers. Along with those objectives, members of the Chamber’s Board, policy councils, and six Area Business Councils engaged local leaders and experts State Senator Richard D. Roth, University of California, Riverside Chancellor Kim Wilcox, Colonel Matthew J. Burger with March Air Reserve Base, Riverside Unified School District Superintendent Dr. David Hansen, and Assistant City Manager

Al Zelinka on the key issues that will impact Riverside’s future in the coming year. Guest facilitator, Dave Kilby with the California Chamber of Commerce, helped the group identify key priorities and understand the important role their local Chamber plays in building a stronger local economy. By the end of the day, these leaders set forth next steps for the Chamber to continue to be a catalyst for positive change. Key takeaways were to collaborate with Riverside Unified School District (RUSD) and the University of California, Riverside to accelerate the construction of the RUSD STEM High School. They also prioritized to advocate for resources and funding to match the region’s growth, including securing additional resources for judgeships, infrastructure projects, healthcare (including mental health).

Chamber Business Briefs Jorgenson Named Interim General Manager at RPU Todd Jorgenson, who has worked for Riverside Public Utilities (RPU) for more than a dozen years, most recently as Assistant General Manager for Water, has been named Interim General Manager by City Manager John Russo. The Chamber looks forward to working with Jorgenson to continue a high level of customer service and quality of life for both Riverside residents and local businesses. In his new role at RPU, Jorgenson will work closely with Assistant City Manager Marianna Marysheva to review all functions of the utility in light of the recent rate increase discussions and in concert with the development of a two-year budget for 2018-2020. Jorgenson assumes leadership of the utility at a time when it has sought a rate increase from the Board of Public Utilities and the Riverside City Council. It also is seeking to secure a second connection to the statewide power grid through the Riverside Transmission Reliability Project, and has completed a visioning document called Utility 2.0. “Todd Jorgenson has served RPU well during the past 12 years, and this opportunity speaks volumes about the confidence our leadership has in him,” Mayor Rusty Bailey said. “We look

forward to working with Todd to continue RPU’s exceptional level of service to our community.” Business Tax Amnesty Program Available to Businesses The Chamber encourages businesses within the City of Riverside participate in the Business Tax Amnesty Program. Businesses that have not paid the required tax from purchasing a business license can get caught up without paying penalties or interest through the program that continues through June 30. The program, made possible through collaboration with the Chamber to help develop this plan, is part of an overall Business Tax Action Plan approved by the Riverside City Council last year. This Plan seeks to inform all businesses of registration and tax requirements to operate in the City. “Businesses taxes help us pave roads, fill potholes, and provide for public safety,” Mayor Rusty Bailey said. “I’m glad to see our staff has worked with the Chamber to help businesses get into compliance so they continue growing and creating jobs without having to worry about penalties and interest payments that ordinarily would apply.” The City of Riverside has also made it much easier for businesses to comply with the requirement by offering online tools to apply for a business license, renew a business

Tokuda states, “Being an Ambassador gives me a chance to be part of a team full of enthusiastic and motivated community members who are making a difference.” Since becoming an Ambassador in August of 2016, Tokuda has seen businesses and friendships grow through his participation in events, grand openings, and ambassador meetings. He explains his favorite part of being an Ambassador is the ability to help other businesses through his advocacy; he loves the ability to bring others into the inclusive and helpful culture of the Chamber. In addition, Tokuda currently sits on the Chamber’s Business In Action Executive Committee, is Vice President - Community Development for the Magnolia Center Business Council, and is part of the Business Education Partnership Council.

There are many great initiatives Mayor Bailey discussed. Some of which will ensure that challenges in Riverside, such as homelessness, are addressed. Mayor Bailey encouraged the business owners and leaders in the audience to participate in a new program called

Riverside at Work. This engages Riverside’s employers to combat homelessness by providing housing, a job, financial training, and socialization skills to the individuals in the program. The future of Riverside is bright and the ideas and initiatives at the forefront of the new year keeps the City in a great position to continue attracting new jobs, residents, and students. The Chamber is proud to partner with the City and business leaders to create value for future generations through economic growth and enhanced quality of life.

Support for March Air Reserve Base’s Century of Service with Decals Join the Chamber and many other local businesses in showing support to March Air Reserve Base (MARB) by purchasing a 2018 Military Appreciation Decal. MARB has a $579 million dollar per year impact on the local economy. Displaying a decal on your business window is a great way to promote the local military installations and recognize personnel for their sacrifice to our country. MARB will also celebrate 100 years in the region this year and the Chamber looks forward to commemorating the last century of service at the March Field AirFest Thunder Over the Inland Empire on April 7 and 8. Funds raised go directly to assist military installations such as the Military Appreciation Picnic where 5,000 meals are served, sponsor the Raincross Trophy Dinner to honor the best of the best in the 4th Air Force, and host the Inland Empire Navy Birthday Ball where funds are donated to The Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society, and hold receptions for visiting military dignitaries. These funds are also

used for the protection, awareness, and expansion of military operations at MARB and the Naval Surface Warfare Center – Corona Division. MARB is a vast and lively air hub that serves a wide variety of functions for the nation’s strategic defense. Military units based at MARB represent all four branches of the Department of Defense; Air Force, Army, Navy, and Marine Corps. In addition, the base’s units span the Total Force with Reserve, National Guard, and Active Duty units calling March ARB home. MARB also serves as home to the Air Force Reserve’s 4th Air Force Headquarters with operational control of more than 32,000 reservists. To join the effort in supporting local members of the Armed Forces, purchase a decal through a $20 tax-deductible contribution to the Military Affairs Council. Additional decals are only $5 each. For more information or to place an order, contact the Chamber at 951-683-7100.
