Economic Development

Following the Collaborative Economic Development Meeting in October of 2014, the participants identified using a bottom-up approach as a suitable match to achieve the economic development outcomes community members and stakeholders envision for the region.  Community economic development principles are being used to drive the economic development services function of the CCRD.  The CCRD is working to identify priorities to help create the atmosphere which will enable entrepreneurs to excel and succeed in the Central Coast reigon.

What is Community Economic Development?

Community Economic Development is a process that demonstrates how everyone in the community has value to add to a healthy local economy and a role to play in developing it.


To build a sustainable economy for the residents and communities of the Central Coast Regional District.
