Treasure Coast Regional Planning Council

CEDS Portal


On September 21, 2012, Treasure Coast Regional Planning Council approved its new five-year (2012-2017) Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS) plan. The CEDS Plan highlights the Region's strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and challenges and provides a set of guiding principles for community leaders to set common economic development goals and priorities for action. The development of this CEDS plan was guided, supported, and coordinated in parallel with the development of the State of Florida's 2012-2017 Statewide Strategic Plan for Economic Development. The framework adopted for state and regional economic development planning efforts is the Six Pillars of Florida's Future Economy developed by the Florida Chamber Foundation. The Six Pillars identifies the critical factors determining Florida's future: (1) Talent Supply and Education, (2) Innovation and Economic Development, (3) Infrastructure and Growth Leadership, (4) Business Climate and Competitiveness, (5) Civic and Governance Systems, and (6) Quality Places.
