AFLEP Legislative Summary – July 2020
AFLEP Case Statement – Local Economic Prosperity through Public Banking; May 2019
Impact Network Santa Fe – Pollinating Prosperity: October 2017
To grow the health and wealth of the Santa Fe community, Impact Network Santa Fe commissioned a mapping project in 2016 for assessing the current state of Santa Fe’s local economy. The mission was to coalesce efforts and generate increasing public and private investment in sustainable, local economic growth.
Key stakeholders were engaged, including: City and County leadership and economic development staffs, members of the Sustainable Santa Fe Commission, local business organizations (e.g. Santa Fe Green Chamber of Commerce), entrepreneurial support organizations, career and job training institutions (e.g. Santa Fe Community College), and local foundations and private investors interested in equity or finance investing for multi-capital community impact.
This report represents the culmination of this work. Its purpose is threefold:
- To shine a spotlight on the unique assets that underlie Santa Fe’s potential for economic development;
- To offer a set of new, coherent strategies for economic development; and
- To identify what exists and what needs to get started to implement these strategies.
Public Banking Institute – (PBI) was formed in January 2011 as an educational non-profit organization. Its mission is to further the understanding, explore the possibilities, and facilitate the implementation of public banking at all levels — local, regional, state, and national.
