Regional Economy Committee

Regional Economy Committee

The CMAP Regional Economy Committee  guides and supports CMAP’s economy-related initiatives and implementation of the region’s comprehensive plan, ON TO 2050. This includes efforts to coordinate and implement regional economic strategies, target resources to disinvested communities, improve housing diversity, and expand investment in export-oriented industries. The committee reviews and provides input on CMAP’s strategic direction, work plan, and economy projects.
