The Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS) is a map leading to a stronger and more diverse regional economy.
The CEDS Commitee will analyze the drivers of our economy and take a closer look at our labor force, educational opportunities, basic industries, service industries, retail, transportation, investment capital, innovation, cost-of-living and cultural amenities. Additionally, they will look at our regional economy compared to surrounding and competing regional economies. From this comparison, the strengths and weaknesses of the region will become evident.
The completed CEDS document has been submitted to the Federal Economic Development Administration and Virginia's Governor, and will be pivotal in obtaining federal infrastructure and development grants in the future. The document also serves as the region's roadmap for economic development in the future.
