Draft 2019 CEDS Public Comment Period
Sep 20 – Oct 24 all-day

The East Central Wisconsin Regional Planning Commission (ECWRPC) is pleased to announce that our Draft 2019 Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS) Annual Report has been completed.

The Draft 2019 CEDS Annual Report contains updated demographic and economic data as well as a performance report on regional economic development goals. The full draft document can be reviewed below:

Preparation of this plan ensures that the East Central Region maintains Economic Development District (EDD) status through the federal Economic Development Administration (EDA), allowing community and regional projects, supporting the goals identified in the document, to apply for funding through a variety of EDA programs. In addition, the CEDS provides a framework for regional economic development by presenting a series of goals, objectives and performance measures along with an analysis of socioeconomic trends, transportation access, regional geography and resources.

The Economic Development Standing Committee will meet and be requested to approve Proposed Resolution No. 25-19 on October 2, 2019. The full ECWRPC Commission will then be requested to approve Resolution No. 25-19 to adopt the Draft plan on October 25, 2019.

Please review the Draft 2019 CEDS document and contact Tom Baron at (920)751-4770 or with any questions or comments by 4:00 p.m. on October 24, 2019. Comments can also be submitted online –

Communities are facing an ever-increasing number of strong weather events and the associated damage to public and private property and infrastructure can take a huge toll, both economically and socially. What is your community’s strategy to be more resilient during extreme weather events? How can you better plan for these events and what funding sources are available to assist with recovery or mitigation? Even better, how can your community be more proactive in implementing the right “fixes” to avoid major catastrophes? If you are an elected official, community development planner, economic development planner, or emergency response provider you should be here to learn about these topics so that resilience is built into your long-range strategy.
