The Florida Department of Economic Opportunity released the
Florida Strategic Plan for Economic Development
On July 18, 2013 the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity released The Florida Strategic Plan for Economic Development. The five-year plan builds on a strong partnership of public, private, and civic organizations. It defines goals, objectives, and strategies to move Florida toward its economic vision. Almost 3,000 partners, stakeholders, business representatives and members of the public collaborated on plan development and extensive input was provided by Florida’s state agencies, local and regional economic development organizations, regional planning councils, local governments, state and local elected officials, the business community and educational institutions.
The Plan specifically recognizes the economic development planning efforts of the Treasure Coast Regional Planning Council and the Seven50 initiative as best practices that have influenced and guided the development of the statewide plan.
“...Looking long-term, the South Florida Regional Planning Council and the Treasure Coast Regional Planning Council have assembled over 200 partners as part of the Southeast Florida Regional Partnership, which is developing a seven-county, 50-year vision and strategic regional plan known as Seven50.”
“…The state should encourage and support regional visioning and collaboration activities, viewing Florida’s regions as incubators for Florida’s future”…
