Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy
The Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS) was prepared by FCAOG staff in conjunction with the CEDS Strategy Committee and Steering Committee, through a capacity building grant from the Economic Development Administration. The goal for this strategic plan is to provide guidance for regional growth while promoting a coordinated approach towards region-wide economic development objectives in Southwest Utah.
The CEDS and Consolidated Plan both employ long-range planning processes in their development. This planning method allowed staff to consolidate information from a wide range of stakeholders and synthesize the findings into a comprehensive regional growth strategy. This consolidation also provides consistent and unified policy direction for regional economic development efforts. The Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy adheres to and satisfies all guidelines provided by both the Economic Development Administration and the Department of Housing and Urban Development.
