From Monterey County Economic Development Department

Good morning,

My name is Darby Marshall and I am with the Monterey County Economic Development Department. The County’s Economic Development Department is working on quantifying the economic losses due to the Pfeiffer Bridge and landslides on businesses. The information will be used to help the County plan the long term recovery of Big Sur and the immediate economic and social impacts that the community is suffering. The information gathered will be used by the County to work on identifying and justifying the need for resources to assist the Big Sur community. Any information we collect will be kept confidential and will only be used to prepare an economic impact report using the IMPLAN software system.

Because the outside world sees your economy as heavily influenced by the seasons, it would also be very helpful if the information can broke down by calendar quarter, e.g. January – March, so that we can develop a more detailed understanding of the impacts based on how long the closure lasts and the seasons that are impacted. We are also requesting information for 2014 through 2016 because of the disruption caused by the Soberanes Fire last year. Please provide as much of the following information as you feel comfortable releasing.
