EMDC’s Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS) identifies goals and objectives for the Eastern Maine region that guide economic growth and regional resiliency. EMDC is designated by the U.S. Economic Development Agency to update the plan every 5 years. The result is a living document that is data-rich, and thoughtfully created with diverse public and private stakeholder input.
The strength of this report comes from the participation of key stakeholders in our region. Special kudos to EMDC’s Planner Anna Stockman for leading the coordination of meetings and framing the agenda and content to encourage interactive and thoughtful discussions. Also extra thanks to EMDC’s Communications Coordinator Kristin Harmon for her writing, design and promotional expertise to ensure the relevancy of the report. Because of the Pandemic, this endeavor was especially important to recognize our collective resilience while carving a promising path forward. -Lee Umphrey, President and CEO, EMDC
