19th Annual General Assembly | South Bay Cities Council of Governments

19th Annual General Assembly

Date: 
Friday, February 23, 2018

The South Bay Cities Council of Governments (SBCCOG) Board of Directors hosted its 19th Annual General Assembly at the Juanita Millender-McDonald Community Center in Carson on Friday, February 23, 2018.

The theme for the SBCCOG’s General Assembly addressed The Evolution of Retail and Its Challenges for Cities. Across the nation, technological changes are disrupting the retail sector and regional economies. Retail businesses are closing, leaving vacant buildings resulting in less sales tax revenue that disrupts both city land use planning and municipal finance. Retailers remaining in business are automating. Dramatic decline in employment in the retail sector is expected. The General Assembly brought together experts to address the possible impacts from these forces of change on South Bay cities and strategies for adapting to the new conditions.
