Economic Development Advisory Committee (EDAC)

The Economic Development Advisory Committee (EDAC) is to provide achievable and sustainable recommendations on community economic development to the Central Coast Regional District (CCRD) Board of Directors for their considerations. EDAC will assist CCRD Staff with implementing resolutions from the Board in regards to community economic development. The EDAC will approach community economic development with the theory of developing from “inside out” or bottom up for the entire region, from a holistic, collaborative, and community driven perspective.
