LCADD requesting feedback on economic development strategy plan

The Lake Cumberland Area Development District is requesting public review and comment on the draft for the 2022-27 Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy Plan, which can be found online at

The CEDS for the area development district serves as a road map for the development of the 10-county region. The document provides a broad overview of where the region currently stands, where it has been, and lays out a path for the next five years. This plan serves as a guiding document for the district’s staff and their board of directors in regards to developing a more economically resilient region.

The CEDS is developed through a joint funding agreement with the Economic Development Administration. The strategy is completely rewritten every five years, with annual updates in between.

The LCADD serves Russell, Adair, Casey, Clinton, Cumberland, Green, McCreary, Pulaski, Taylor, and Wayne counties as well as 14 municipalities located within their boundaries.

Comments on the CEDS will be accepted until Sunday, November 13th.

Questions or feedback can be directed to Lyndsey Brown at [email protected].
