Over the course of this year, UMVRDC staff have developed a new Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS). The CEDS is an economic roadmap that helps map out the goals of economic development throughout the entire region and the action plan that the UMVRDC staff will be taking over the next 5 years to meet these goals. These goals were developed by a combination of a CEDS Strategy Committee made up of representatives from all over the region, public engagement, and UMVRDC staff.
We highly encourage you to read this draft of the CEDS and leave your comments on the goals and action items in it. Your engagement with the CEDS will help the UMVRDC ensure that all interests throughout the region are taken in account as the UMVRDC works on this plan for the next 5 years. If you wish to leave a comment, please email Jack@umvrdc.org.
The public comment period will be open until December 24th. All comments submitted after this date will not be considered.
