2018-2022 Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy

The West Florida Regional Planning Council (WFRPC) is pleased to present the 2018-2022 Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS) . The CEDS is a 5-year strategy to guide activity and investment to support economic growth in the WFRPC region (Escambia, Santa Rosa, Okaloosa, Walton, Holmes, Washington, and Bay counties), which is designated as an Economic Development District by the U.S. Economic Development Administration. The CEDS is the result of a data-driven and participatory planning process that invites stakeholders to bring forward new project ideas and identify economic development ventures currently underway that merit ongoing community support. The CEDS is monitored annually to track implementation of the action plan and its outcomes

The current CEDS follows the Florida Chamber Foundation’s Six Pillars™ framework with two additional pillars added in response to the local needs of our region.

(3) Infrastructure & Growth Leadership

(4) Business Climate& Competitiveness
