Region adopts new economic strategy

The region's Economic Development District board has put its finishing touches on  Amazing Place: Growing Jobs and Opportunity in the central Puget Sound region. The new strategy continues to emphasize traditional economic development priorities including: transportation, education, international trade and the region's business climate. New emphasis areas include a specific rural strategy, initiatives to grow jobs throughout the region, advancing social equity and affordable housing. The strategy also includes a new implementation framework designed to keep the region nimble. The EDD board will continuously develop current priority actions. You can find the latest draft of the new strategy  here.  The board made some last-minute changes that staff is working to include in a final report later this month.
