During the event, San Bernardino County officials also looked ahead at the people and places expected to impact the area in the next 10 years, according to a news release. A demonstration of the county’s growth, as well as its resulting impact on the local and regional economy, was featured during the event. The long-term effects of the Countywide Vision were also discussed. In addition, the event profiled business leaders who shared their thoughts on critical issues. Those leaders represented the High Desert Training Center, ReRubber, Connect Homes, East Valley Water District, Haven City Market and the San Bernardino County Transportation Authority. The High Desert Training Center was set to open in April 2020 at the Southern California Logistics Airport in Victorville, according to John Nahlen, Victor Valley College’s interim deputy superintendent/executive vice president of Administrative Services. The Center will offer hands-on programs to better prepare the local workforce for success within local industries, including avionics, manufacturing, building materials and mining.
