Economic Development

Three Rivers Regional Commission’s economic development objectives encompass growth and commercial development for local businesses creating jobs, and compatibility among existing and new uses leading to a higher quality of life for residents.

In cooperation with local governments in the 10-county TRRC region, TRRC has developed a Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS) to initiate and sustain a local planning and implementation process by which jobs are created, more stable and diversified economies are fostered, and living conditions are improved.

A CEDS is a mechanism for coordinating economic developments activities and is a valuable tool for bringing focus to the planning and development efforts of these unique and diverse communities throughout the region.
