Posted on: April 3rd, 2013 by Brett Schwartz

These materials are from the “Implementing a Regional Plan as an Over-arching Economic Development Strategy – Focus on Implementation Strategies and Toolkit” 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, Christie Oostema (Envision Utah (http://www NULL.envisionutah NULL.org/)) explained how a rural implementation toolkit was developed based on the scenarios planning process, with a focus on economic development and innovative strategies for rural and smaller places.  The session also included a discussion led by Dave Conine (USDA Rural Development (http://www NULL.rurdev NULL.usda NULL.gov/Home NULL.html)) of available USDA programs, and how rural places can access those resources to promote greater economic outcomes.
