Planning and Community Development
UACED staff work with towns, counties and regions to develop comprehensive plans that guide them with their community development efforts. These plans typically include: workforce, economic development structure, retail/commercial service and outdoor recreational opportunities. It is important for Alabama communities to have a vision and a workable strategic plan to guide their growth and development. The UACED staff work with external partners such as Alabama Power Company and Auburn University to provide strategic planning to communities throughout the state.
