Healthy Santa Cruz County 2025 Conference


Rio Rico Fire District, SEAHEC and the Tubac Health Care Foundation coordinated the first "Healthy SCC 2025 Vision Conference".  The conference included over 1500 years of experience from individuals representing the medical community, planning & zoning, education, private businesses, social services, religious organizations, public safety, elected officials and social organizations, amongst others.  The goal of the conference was to share our individual vision of our county.  Participants had a chance to identify current trends and prioritize the most important goals to impact the community, providing and inclusive, ideal vision of what our Santa Cruz County should look like in 2025. 

Common Themes for SCC 2025 included:

  • Economic Development
  • Education - well-funded and available to all at all levels
  • Public and Affordable Transportation throughout the county
  • Healthcare facilities able to meet community needs
  • Culture of physical fitness and healthy habits
  • Local agriculture boosting job opportunities and providing easy access to healthy foods
  • Environmental sustainability

Each one of the priority areas identified stakeholders and partners.  The "Vision" will continue on with specific stakeholders and projects, hoping to surpass our own visions for SCC 2025!
