CEDS Online Survey

The Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS) will serve as the fundamental plan for Tri-County Council for Western Maryland's economic development efforts for the communities it serves for the next five years. As part of this process, CEDS Committee members have developed an online survey. The survey seeks to understand the views of community members on the opportunities and threats associated with the region's economic growth and development. Tri-County Council wants the regional community to have strong and substantive input in the process. Specifically, TCCWMD asks the region to guide its economic development efforts by helping to prioritize issues that affect Western Maryland.
