Posted on: April 3rd, 2013 by Brett Schwartz

These materials are from the “Best Practices in Creating Strong Regional Economic Development Strategies” session held at the Prosperous Places workshop in Salt Lake City, March 25-26.  Organized by NADO and Envision Utah (http://www NULL.envisionutah NULL.org/), this workshop brought together around 50 HUD Sustainable Communities grantees, experts, and capacity-builders to focus on place-based local economic development strategies and scenarios planning.

In this session, Brian Kelsey (NADO) explained how regions are developing effective economic development strategies by linking land use, transportation, and workforce development using sound data and effective communication techniques.  The session included a discussion of the Comprehensive Development Strategy (CEDS) and techniques for integrating the CEDS with other regional plans.
