The Council’s Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy provides economic information and technical assistance to local governments, private businesses, and neighborhood-based organizations with respect to the creation and expansion of employment opportunities, thereby maintaining our designation as an Economic Development District.

As the District’s “Planning Organization,” the South Florida Regional Council has updated the 5-year Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS) for the District. Click the respective links for the CEDS brochure about the update process and the final document of the CEDS, dated 2012.

The Council also participates in economic development initiatives throughout the Region.
