Anchorage Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy

AEDC is hosting a series of community and business roundtables as part of the Anchorage Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy. These discussions are meant to align the business community’s priorities with the public’s priorities throughout the CEDS process. The CEDS is an economic strategy, so we want to be sure we’re focusing on economic goals that benefit everyone.


Learn more about the Anchorage CEDS and how it addresses economic prosperity and resiliency.


AEDC and the Municipality of Anchorage have partnered on the Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy in order to create a deliberate future for Anchorage.

“The Anchorage CEDS is going to gather all the pieces we need to work on to begin improving the economy at a local level. All these pieces form the picture that is going to set our focus for the next five years.” – AEDC President & CEO Bill Popp
