CEDS CONTENT GUIDELINES
What are the new EDA content recommendations?
1. Linking the sections to improve CEDS focus and measurable impact
2. Emphasizing strategies rather than a stand-alone list of projects
3. Infusing economic resiliency into the CEDS document
Content Requirements:
• Summary Background: A summary background of the economic conditions of the region;
• SWOT Analysis: An in-depth analysis of economic and community strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and
threats (commonly known as a “SWOT” analysis);
• Strategic Direction/Action Plan: Strategic direction/approaches and an action plan (flowing from the SWOT
analysis), which should be consistent with other relevant state/regional/local plans. The action plan should
also identify the stakeholder(s) responsible for implementation;
• Evaluation Framework: Performance measures used to evaluate the organization’s successful development
and implementation of the CEDS.
14
CEDS CONTENT GUIDELINES
What are the formatting recommendations?
1. Keep your audience in mind
• Target page length
• Executive summary
• Use appendices
2. Communicate creatively
• Appealing look-and-feel
• Alternate formats
3. Think beyond the document
• Consider stakeholder engagement
CEDS vintage 2001 (left) and 2013 (right)
15
STRATEGIC PLANNING
• Development of CEDS should be done with advisory panel of public and private
entities from across the region
• Opportunity to include diverse array of regional partners, including workforce,
industry, private and public, and young leaders
• CEDS should reflect broad needs and opportunities of the region, not only
projects that align with EDA funding
• Follow requirements in new regulations and new CEDS Content Guidelines
• EDDs that are regionally-focused and engaged have unique understanding on activities
underway and interrelationship between them
• This provides opportunity to try to help connect groups and facilitate coordination
among similarly focused efforts so limited resources can go further
• Regional focus of EDD allows it to articulate costs and benefits of projects in way no
other local entity often can, and can be a powerful voice for moving forward with
regional plans as articulated in CEDS
16
OUTREACH
• Changing nature of economic development necessitates on-going and sometimes
creative outreach strategies
– Consider all key stakeholders who need information and how they may be most likely to receive it.
• Amid focus on social media and websites, do not overlook value of human connection
and engaging people
• Outreach has to be frequent enough to ensure folks can provide “reasonable” response
to questions on what it is and why it matters
• Message needs to be clear and concise (elevator pitch)
• Outreach needs to be not just on what CEDS is, but on EDA’s grant programs and
priorities
17
FACILITATE CONNECTIONS
• EDDs that are regionally-focused and engaged have understanding on activities
underway and interrelationship between them
• This provides opportunity to try to help connect groups and facilitate coordination
among similarly focused efforts so limited resources can go further
• Regional focus of EDD allows it to articulate costs and benefits of projects in way no
other local entity often can, and can be a powerful voice for moving forward with
regional plans as articulated in CEDS
18
COMMUNICATE SUCCESS
A key part of being an effective EDD – and helping build the positive brand of the
Planning Program (and that of the COGs) – is communicating success back to wide array
of stakeholders, including:
• CEDS Committee
• All regional economic developers
• County Managers
• County Commissioners
• Other groups working on economic development in your region
• EDA!!!!
19
EFFECTIVE CEDS
An Effective CEDS
• Identifies a region’s competitive advantages
• Demonstrates an EDD’s grasp of key trends
• Promotes cross-sector collaboration
• Commits to measurable success
• Tells a compelling story about the future
• Motivates action
Wasatch Front Regional Council’s 3 Key Strategies for Integrating Economic
Development, Transportation, and Land Use Planning
• Coordinate transportation investments with economic cluster locational and
service needs
• Coordinate transportation investments to improve access to opportunity
• Ensure fiscal sustainability through efficient growth and infrastructure investments

  • 13. 13 CEDS CONTENT GUIDELINES What are the new EDA content recommendations? 1. Linking the sections to improve CEDS focus and measurable impact 2. Emphasizing strategies rather than a stand-alone list of projects 3. Infusing economic resiliency into the CEDS document Content Requirements: • Summary Background: A summary background of the economic conditions of the region; • SWOT Analysis: An in-depth analysis of economic and community strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats (commonly known as a “SWOT” analysis); • Strategic Direction/Action Plan: Strategic direction/approaches and an action plan (flowing from the SWOT analysis), which should be consistent with other relevant state/regional/local plans. The action plan should also identify the stakeholder(s) responsible for implementation; • Evaluation Framework: Performance measures used to evaluate the organization’s successful development and implementation of the CEDS.
  • 14. 14 CEDS CONTENT GUIDELINES What are the formatting recommendations? 1. Keep your audience in mind • Target page length • Executive summary • Use appendices 2. Communicate creatively • Appealing look-and-feel • Alternate formats 3. Think beyond the document • Consider stakeholder engagement CEDS vintage 2001 (left) and 2013 (right)
  • 15. 15 STRATEGIC PLANNING • Development of CEDS should be done with advisory panel of public and private entities from across the region • Opportunity to include diverse array of regional partners, including workforce, industry, private and public, and young leaders • CEDS should reflect broad needs and opportunities of the region, not only projects that align with EDA funding • Follow requirements in new regulations and new CEDS Content Guidelines • EDDs that are regionally-focused and engaged have unique understanding on activities underway and interrelationship between them • This provides opportunity to try to help connect groups and facilitate coordination among similarly focused efforts so limited resources can go further • Regional focus of EDD allows it to articulate costs and benefits of projects in way no other local entity often can, and can be a powerful voice for moving forward with regional plans as articulated in CEDS
  • 16. 16 OUTREACH • Changing nature of economic development necessitates on-going and sometimes creative outreach strategies – Consider all key stakeholders who need information and how they may be most likely to receive it. • Amid focus on social media and websites, do not overlook value of human connection and engaging people • Outreach has to be frequent enough to ensure folks can provide “reasonable” response to questions on what it is and why it matters • Message needs to be clear and concise (elevator pitch) • Outreach needs to be not just on what CEDS is, but on EDA’s grant programs and priorities
  • 17. 17 FACILITATE CONNECTIONS • EDDs that are regionally-focused and engaged have understanding on activities underway and interrelationship between them • This provides opportunity to try to help connect groups and facilitate coordination among similarly focused efforts so limited resources can go further • Regional focus of EDD allows it to articulate costs and benefits of projects in way no other local entity often can, and can be a powerful voice for moving forward with regional plans as articulated in CEDS
  • 18. 18 COMMUNICATE SUCCESS A key part of being an effective EDD – and helping build the positive brand of the Planning Program (and that of the COGs) – is communicating success back to wide array of stakeholders, including: • CEDS Committee • All regional economic developers • County Managers • County Commissioners • Other groups working on economic development in your region • EDA!!!!
  • 19. 19 EFFECTIVE CEDS An Effective CEDS • Identifies a region’s competitive advantages • Demonstrates an EDD’s grasp of key trends • Promotes cross-sector collaboration • Commits to measurable success • Tells a compelling story about the future • Motivates action Wasatch Front Regional Council’s 3 Key Strategies for Integrating Economic Development, Transportation, and Land Use Planning • Coordinate transportation investments with economic cluster locational and service needs • Coordinate transportation investments to improve access to opportunity • Ensure fiscal sustainability through efficient growth and infrastructure investments
