Mid Columbia/Columbia Gorge
Annually, MCEDD collaborates with community representatives to develop our Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS). This plan identifies strategies based on current trends and areas best suited for growth to sustain and enhance the region’s economy. It serves as a guide for establishing regional goals and objectives, developing and implementing a regional plan of action, and identifying investment priorities.
The CEDS process is an important component of the region’s development. It is designed to be flexible in meeting the current needs of the region, as well as providing future accommodation for development. It provides a mechanism to coordinate the efforts of individuals, organizations, local governments, and private industry concerned with economic development
