Economic Development Planning
Local SCED representatives work with community action groups to plan and strategize the future. In working with the Community Economic Revitalization Team in Option 9 counties, SCED assists in developing community action plans. These plans often lead to specific projects which SCED representatives assist in implementing.
An example of this is the Mill Site Reuse Project which was initiated in 1998. This project supports planning and redevelopment projects for selected closed and under-utilized mill sites in Northern California in partnership with local communities, the Economic Development Administration and other federal and state agencies.
