Aligning and Implementing Regional Goals
How do you implement a roadmap to diversify and strengthen a region’s economy? With new thinking, innovative planning and creative minds.
Vision Hampton Roads, the product of nearly one year of involving more than 150 community volunteers in the planning and 500 citizens in a public survey, is the final Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS) document. It will serve as the guide for regional goals and objectives and aid local governments in decision-making, identifying investment priorities and funding sources.
The CEDS experience in Hampton Roads is about creating an ongoing economic development process that is embraced by our region. Vision planning has placed Hampton Roads on a path to regional transformation by embedding a working process in all that we do as we … think, live and act regionally.
Hampton Roads is a region that will thrive as we cultivate innovation, truly educate our workforce, invest in infrastructure and create quality places. We will be successful as the entire region aligns to achieve the goal and objectives of Vision Hampton Roads.
