May 27, 2020: Weekly update for Project Rebound, our area's team effort for economic recovery in Charlottesville and Albemarle County.

Seven industry-specific teams have submitted their initial findings to the Project Rebound steering committee. Our wonderful facilitators and scribes compiled all the data from 17+ meetings into 127 pages of thoughtful commentary and creative thinking.

The teams' incredible collaborative efforts during the last few weeks have encouraged and inspired many people in our area and beyond.

The project is on track to publish a report on these initial findings in early June. We've also begun to identify some potential action steps that could get underway before the full report is released. More details coming soon.
