Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS)

Sierra Business Council administers the Sierra Economic Development District (SEDD), which includes El Dorado, Nevada, Placer,  Sierra, and Plumas counties. We’re currently developing the Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS) for these five counties.

SBC is pleased to present the Draft 2023-2027 Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS) for Public Comment. This CEDS pertains to the Sierra Economic Development District which includes Placer, Nevada, Sierra, Plumas, El Dorado counties.

A CEDS is a roadmap designed to build resilience and diversify the regional economy. The CEDS brings together public, private and philanthropic sectors and the document is required to qualify for future funding from the U.S. Economic Development Administration and other agencies.

The goal of the Sierra Economic Development District CEDS is to codify a regional strategy to advance prosperity and improve quality of life in communities that are primarily rural and socio-economically and ecologically diverse. This strategy is designed to increase regional economic capacity, diversify local economies, promote broadband, and guide prosperity and resiliency of the area.
