The Northwest Regional Planning Commission has prepared the Final Draft of the 2020-2024 Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS).
In 1973, the Economic Development Administration of the U.S. Department of Commerce designated the NWRPC as an Economic Development District (EDD). As a result, a Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS) is prepared to guide the economic growth of the District. In 2020, NWRPC prepared the 2020-2024 CEDS five-year plan. The document provides an analysis of local conditions; identifies the problems, needs, and opportunities of the district; defines the vision, goals, and objectives of the district; and designates and coordinates strategies and/or activities to accomplish and implement its goals. The strategy also includes a regional project list developed through local stakeholder input. Formal public comments on the final draft of the CEDS can be made from September 24th through October 26th, 2020. To request a hard copy, you may contact Crystal Rohde, who is taking all public comments on the document at 715-635-2197 or email. Any public comments received will be incorporated into the final strategy to be adopted by the NWRPC Executive Committee at the October 28th, 2020 meeting.
