Regional Economic Development Strategy

 

The Southeastern Connecticut Region, which includes the 21 municipalities within New London County, (Windham added in 2015) prepared a Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS) for the region in 2011.  In September 2014, we completed an extensive update to the 2011 document, which includes new projects for several municipalities. This document replaced the 2011 CEDS and all prior updates and project lists. That information is available by clicking on the box on the right side of this page.

 

The Data Update of the current economy in SouthEastern CT was completed by the Connecticut Economic Resource Center (CERC).  Their complete report, which is in Appendix of complete CEDS  may be read here.

 

 

Preparation of the 2014 update included discussions about project status with responsible parties and CEDS Committee members, identifying for EDA changes in economic situation in region since June 2012, and gathering information on potential new projects to add to CEDS. There were slight revisions made to the 2011 Goals and Objectives to clarify the region's priorities. The update was adopted by the CEDS Committee in September and will now be sent to the EDA for review and approval. The next full CEDS for the region will be prepared in 2016. The 2014 CEDS update can be viewed below:

 

 

 

2016 Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy Plan

 

Progress is being made on the 2016 CEDS. We have held a total of four general public input sessions to discuss the Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats impacting the regional economy and an additional 9 Focus Group discussions on Transportation, Education, Entrepreneurship and the New Economy, Arts and Culture, Land Use/Zoning, Agriculture, Tourism, and Utilities. The four sub-regional SWOT analyses were held in Windham, Norwich, New London and Mystic. Approximately 175 residents and stakeholders participated. An additional 100 stakeholders have participated in the Focus Groups to date. Click BELOW to view a DRAFT of the summary of input received to date. This is a work in progress! The final document will be included as an appendix in the full CEDS document.

Stay tuned for the Visioning and Goals Public Session planned for early 2017.

Upcoming Events:

Goals and Visioning Event - Date and location to be determined. Camoin Associates will present their broad data findings and attendees will review and comment on draft goals and vision for the CEDS.
