Posted on: October 4th, 2012 by Kate Humphrey

Since becoming an EDA-designated Economic Development District, the North Central Florida Regional Planning Council maintained two separate and distinct policy documents concerning economic growth and development of the region. In 2011, the council integrated the analysis of the regional economy and the economic development strategies from its Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy into the North Central Florida Strategic Regional Policy Plan as the economic development chapter of the Regional Plan. The council now has a single, unified economic development policy statement for the region. Significant engagement and involvement of the private sector and the civic community resulted in strategies that reflect the vision of the regional community and not just the council.
