Verdugo Workforce Development Board Local Plan Modification

The Verdugo Workforce Development Board (VWDB) has modified its Local Workforce Development Plan 2021-2024. The modification establishes the types of workforce development activities that will be offered in the Verdugo Workforce Development Area (VWDA), including programs for unemployed job seekers and youth. The modified Plan will also include programs to assist local businesses to ensure they have the qualified workforce to meet their organizational needs. The VWDA consists of the cities of Burbank, Glendale and La Cañada Flintridge which is governed by a Joint Powers Agreement that creates the Verdugo Consortium.


The draft of the modified Local Plan is available at from January 20, 2023 through February 19, 2023. The VWDB will be accepting any comments from the public so that those issues can be considered and addressed as appropriate. When emailing comments, please identify your name, organization (if applicable), address, city, state, zip code and phone number. Please also include the page number and section of the plan you are referencing.

Comments, including any disagreements with the plan, are welcome; however, must be received no later than 5:00 p.m. on February 19, 2023. Comments should be emailed to MaryAnn Pranke at
