The Crater Commission is currently developing an update to the Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS), which will reflect local economic development needs and priorities, and will also recommend regional approaches to achieve sustainable economic development. 

This meeting will offer an opportunity for citizens to voice opinions on a vision, and the goals to be included in the CEDS document for achieving the vision. It will also offer citizens an opportunity to obtain an understanding of local/regional initiatives that will impact this region’s economic future.
