Community & Economic Development
Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy
MAPC has a Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS) with goals for the region that include economic development policies and practices driven by MetroFuture, our regional plan. The CEDS identifies barriers to economic development; calls out the need for transportation systems that are adequately financed; and asks that we build on our existing strengths in looking towards the future.
Art and culture add vibrancy to places and neighborhoods, and can be an integral part of community planning and economic development. Learn more about the arts and culture goals and strategies outlined in our MetroFuture regional plan and about the resources and technical assistance we can provide: www.mapc.org/art.
