Greater Portland Inc develops the region’s Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS) every five years on behalf of the Greater Portland Economic Development District (GPEDD), which includes Multnomah, Washington, Clackamas and Clark counties. The current CEDS was developed in direct partnership with Metro, and was adopted by the GPEDD board of directors on July 29, 2021 and released publicly on Nov. 3, 2021.

Vision statement

The Greater Portland region is an equitable, innovative, resilient and forward-thinking economy that fosters upward economic mobility for individuals and prosperity for businesses.


How will the CEDS be used?


If you have questions about the CEDS or its planning process, reach out to Brittany Bagent, GPI’s Vice President of Strategy, at brittany.bagent@greaterportlandinc.com.

In addition to the CEDS, GPEDD recently developed an economic recovery plan for the region in response to COVID-19. This work directly informed and is embedded in the CEDS.
