NCNMEDD Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy

The North Central NM Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS) is a community-driven blueprint for growing the regional economy. EDA uses the CEDS to guide their strategic investments in our region. North Central uses the CEDS planning process to coordinate and align our program of work with local, regional and statewide economic development plans. We thank all of our local government officials and community members who assisted with the development of this document.

County Meetings for Area Sector Analysis Process (ASAP)

As part of the process of developing a Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS) for our region, NCNMEDD held virtual Roadshow meetings for each county to review targeted industry clusters. Our partners at the Western Rural Development Center have generated industry cluster lists based on the results of asset surveys and community preference surveys. 

ASAP Slides

The Area Sector Analysis Process (ASAP) is an award-winning process to use in collaboration with community leaders in targeted, sustainable, economic development.

ASAP assists communities by identifying: community goals and priorities for economic development; community assets that will help achieve the community’s goals and priorities; industry needs and factors important for locating their operations in a community; and businesses that are consistent with the community’s goals and priorities. Each link provides the slides presented during the county meetings including the poll results.
