New CEDS Adopted

Upper Coastal Plain CEDS 2023-2027 

On October 19, 2022, the Upper Coastal Plain CEDS Advisory Committee adopted the region's new Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS). The primary purpose of the CEDS is to provide a comprehensive, performance-based strategy to strengthen the region. The process includes an analysis of the region’s economy, established plans, area challenges & opportunities, with strategies and tactics for moving the region forward.

The Upper Coastal Plain CEDS 2023-2027 is designed to identify both regional and local priorities for economic, community and human development. It strives to take a holistic approach, recognizing that the many complex issues and systems are interconnected and reliant upon each other.  The success of this strategy relies on informed stakeholder input, key baseline data and facts, and partnership action on implementation. Working together as a region on these agreed upon strategies and actions will result in a more resilient, thriving, equitable economy and community.
