The Together North Jersey Regional CEDS document is structured in two PDF bookmarked documents (an Action Plan and a Technical Report) as follows:
North Jersey Regional CEDS – Volume 1: Action Plan
North Jersey Regional CEDS – Volume 2: Technical Report
The heart of the Volume 1 — the Action Plan — is organized around four focus areas: regional innovation clusters, entrepreneurship and innovation, infrastructure, and workforce training. The Action Plan is preceded by a Regional Economic Profile, which includes a summary of key economic indicators for each of the 13 counties. The Implementation Matrix breaks out each of the strategies and actions into a table and provides estimates of impact, feasibility, duration, and partner organizations needed for implementation. A section on Performance Measures lists the recommended metrics to gauge the success of the plan in building economic competitiveness in future years. Finally, a description of major Regional Infrastructure Investments is provided.
Volume 2 contains the supporting components of the CEDS planning effort. This includes an extensive Industry and Occupational Analysis of the region, a listing of High Priority Strategies found in existing county CEDS and other state/regional planning documents, a Resource Matrix of organizations that can support implementation of the CEDS, and a summary of Economically Distressed Communities in the region.
