2023 – 2028 Prosperity for All Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS)
Over the past 10 months, the Centralia team worked in partnership with the Centralina Economic Development District Board of Trustees, CEDS Steering Committee and a range of stakeholders to assess the region’s current economic conditions and develop a strategy to build on existing assets while addressing both short-term shocks and structural challenges to the economy. These findings were the building blocks of the 2023 – 2028 Prosperity for All CEDS. The CEDS is a five-year locally based, regionally driven economic development strategy to generate good jobs, diversify the economy and spur economic growth. At the heart of our Prosperity for All approach is the desire to improve the overall resilience and inclusivity of the people, places and economy of our nine-county Centralina region.
