Overview of the Planning Process

Envision East Central Iowa worked with a cross section of regional stakeholders to explore the region’s economic development ecosystem and how it could evolve in the future. A key focus of the plan is a collaborative approach to build an inclusive and resilient environment for the region. The 8-month long visioning and strategic planning process began in July 2021 and ended in March 2022. This report represents Future iQ’s analysis of the research and engagement outcomes. It outlines how the extensive accumulated data has informed the identification of a preferred future and key strategic action areas for future economic development in the East Central Iowa Region.

Over 500 people have contributed to the plan’s development.
