2016 Five Year Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy

The 2016 Five Year Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS) is a coordinated document that entails the work done by EMCOG in collaboration with the RED Team and other stakeholder groups over the past two years to develop prosperity strategies for the three prosperity regions within the EMCOG designated EDD. The draft CEDS was vetted throughout the region in order to solicit public comment. Comments received were presented to and discussed at the January 22, 2016 RED Team meeting. The public comments were incorporated into the approved 2016 Five Year CEDS and the final document was submitted to the Federal Department of Commerce Economic Development Administration (EDA) on January 29, 2016.
