Interested citizens are encouraged to review the previous CEDS, consider the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats regarding economic development in their area, and attend the hearing to offer their comments regarding important local issues and needs. The plan can be obtained on the EARPDC website, or by contacting Shelby Peterson. If you have any questions about the hearing or the CEDS, please contact Mrs. Shelby Peterson, Senior Planner, at the East Alabama Regional Planning and Development Commission at (256) 237-6741.
