2022 State of the County to draw local leaders, businesses, nonprofits, residents together

Following a three-year hiatus, the County of Riverside State of the County will be held on Thursday, December 8, at the Morongo Resort in Cabazon. The event will run from 8 to 11 a.m., with speeches on Riverside County’s outlook delivered by Board Chairman Jeff Hewitt, Supervisor Karen Spiegel, and Supervisor V. Manuel Perez. The event also includes networking opportunities and an expo of businesses and services.

County Executive Officer Jeff Van Wagenen will serve as master of ceremonies.

The State of the County will bring hundreds of stakeholders together to discuss Riverside County’s growth and opportunities. Other key drivers of Riverside County’s strong regional economy include job growth, high quality of life, as well as the tourism and hospitality industries.

“Riverside County is the fastest growing county in Southern California,” Chairman Hewitt said. “With a booming population and an emerging tech ecosystem, we are the premier location in Southern California for business investments. The State of the County event is a central gathering to share our tremendous growth and outlook for all of our businesses, nonprofits, and residents to see.”

Typically an annual event, the last State of the County event was held in 2018 and rescheduled the last two years due to the coronavirus pandemic.

“The recent 2020 Census data confirms what we’ve known for years,” Van Wagenen said. “We believe our rapid growth is proof that we’re doing something right as more people choose to live and work here. We are growing by 30,000 people every year – that’s like adding a city the size of Desert Hot Springs, Norco, or Wildomar every year. We are optimistic that our population growth will also pave the way for new and increased funding that provides for critically important services to our residents.”
