An economic development strategy is a comprehensive plan that outlines the specific steps and actions required to enhance a region’s economic growth, create jobs, and improve the overall quality of life for its residents. This strategy aims to leverage a community’s unique assets, identify opportunities for growth, and attract investment, all while addressing the challenges and obstacles that may hinder economic progress. By analyzing factors such as industry trends, workforce development, and infrastructure needs, an economic development strategy provides a roadmap to guide local governments, businesses, and stakeholders in fostering a thriving and sustainable economy.
An economic development strategy can have numerous benefits for a community, such as: job creation, increased revenue, improved quality of life, enhanced competitiveness, and sustainable growth. Overall, an economic development strategy provides a roadmap for a community’s economic growth and prosperity, creating a more vibrant and resilient community for both current and future residents.

Key components of an economic development strategy include:

  • Comprehensive understanding of place-based assets and location advantages
  • Identification and awareness of key economic assets and emerging economic opportunities based on existing assets and global trends
  • Economic vision development, consensus, and awareness
  • Targeting key economic sectors for growth, which helps direct economic development efforts in a strategic manner and allows limited resources to be used wisely

Successful economic development strategies can take various forms, including:

  • Leveraging and improving existing efforts: Analyze and update current programs to enhance their effectiveness and increase participation
  • Identifying and addressing gaps: Assess your region’s existing initiatives to pinpoint any areas that require new strategies
  • Establishing partnerships and rural hubs: Collaborate with other organizations and create regional hubs to foster economic growth
  • Utilizing Comprehensive Economic Development Strategies (CEDS): Implement the CEDS framework to promote regional prosperity and enable economic development by investing in new ideas, knowledge transfer, and infrastructure
  • Smart growth strategies: Encourage economic development in small towns and rural communities by identifying barriers to development and engaging the public in adopting master plans that protect resources and create walkable neighborhoods
  • Focusing on specific industries or technologies: Target industries such as drones, insurance, water technologies, or life sciences to create specialized hubs that attract investment and generate economic growth
