What is CEDS?
A comprehensive economic development strategy (CEDS) is designed to
bring together the public and private sectors in the creation of an economic
roadmap to diversify and strengthen the regional economy. The CEDS
analyzes the regional economy and serves as a guide for establishing regional
goals and objectives, developing and implementing a regional plan of action,
and identifying investment priorities and funding sources. A CEDS sets forth
a strategy necessary to solve the economic development problems
of the region, clearly defines the metrics of success, and provides a useful
benchmark by which a regional economy can evaluate opportunities with
other regions in the national economy.
