North Country Economic Development Comprehensive Strategy Committee (CEDS)

The CEDS Committee is responsible for developing and revising the Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS). This committee is comprised of individuals that represent a broad range of constituencies in the region. These stakeholders include public officials, state and federal representatives, institutions of higher education, workforce development, healthcare, local business owners, non-profits and regional leaders.

The CEDS Committee reviews projects and activities in the region that pertain to economic development and job creation. It meets bi-monthly to review and prioritize economic development projects and update the CEDS. Committee meetings also provide a forum for pending projects to present material to the Committee for their consideration.
