Community Survey to Support Regional Economic Development Strategy


The Eastern Sierra Council of Governments (ESCOG), a coalition of Inyo County, Mono County, the City of Bishop and the Town of Mammoth Lakes, announced today that a community-wide survey is open for residents and individuals to provide feedback on themes identified in a regional economic development strategic planning process.

ESCOG has partnered with several other parties to participate in the creation of a Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS) for the region. The region’s geography is Alpine, Inyo, and Mono Counties.

A Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS) is a formal document that meets the guidelines put forth by the Economic Development Administration (EDA). The EDA defines a CEDS as “a strategy-driven plan for regional economic development. A CEDS is the result of a regionally-owned planning process designed to build capacity and guide the economic prosperity and resiliency of an area or region.” When a region has a CEDS, it is eligible for funding opportunities made available through the EDA’s Public Works and Economic Adjustment Assistance programs to advance recommendations and priorities identified in the CEDS.

The surveys available in both English and Spanish. Individuals can access the online survey option here:

The partners that compromise the steering committee for the Eastern Sierra CEDS initiative are Alpine County, Eastern Sierra Council of Governments, City of Bishop, Inyo County, Mono County, and Rural County Representatives of California, and Town of Mammoth Lakes. TPMA is the consulting firm providing research, facilitation, and recommendations to complete the CEDS document.
