Now that the website draft has been published, developers of the 2022 U.S. 30 Corridor Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS) are seeking public input.
According to the project website, CEDS is a strategy-driven plan for regional economic development that is the result of a regionally owned planning process. In this case, it was developed as a tool for the four north central Ohio counties along the US30 corridor.
Officials in Wyandot, Crawford, Richland, and Ashland Counties have contributed time to developing and fine-tuning this too. In turn, the Economic Development Administration uses the plan to trigger funds for assistance in infrastructure, and is also shown to companies considering locating a facility in the region.
At this point, feedback is needed. You are asked to take a few moments, look over the website, and let them know if you have any suggestions for improvement. This invitation for public comment is the final community engagement step in a plan dating back to early 2021.
