CEDS 2022-2026

The SIMPCO CEDS (Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy) is a strategy-driven plan for regional economic development.  The CEDS is the result of a regionally-owned planning process designed to build capacity and guide the economic prosperity and resiliency of the Siouxland region. SIMPCO works with the CEDS Committee, which consists of representatives from both the public and private sectors, to oversee the CEDS and implement the plan’s goals and objectives. The current CEDS was approved by the SIMPCO Board of Directors on September 15, 2022.
