The Regional Economic Development Advisory Collaborative, or REDAC,  will oversee and contribute to the development of the CEDS for the Economic Development District comprising the Michigan counties of Chippewa, Luce, and Mackinac, as recognized by the EDA. This includes, but is not limited to, reviewing and providing guidance to the annual performance report on the CEDS and the 5-year revision, as well as recommending action on approval or disapproval to EUPRPDC’s governing board.

The REDAC serves as a forum for educational and networking opportunities concerning economic development in the Eastern Upper Peninsula. Educational and networking opportunities will stem from projects and initiatives being led by EUPRPDC, REDAC members, and guests invited to speak at meetings on topics considered to be regionally significant by EUPRPDC or the REDAC. As such, REDAC members should convey the economic development news and updates to colleagues and/or constituents to ensure Eastern Upper Peninsula-wide awareness and support.

The REDAC will be comprised of a collection of experts from throughout the region whose combined knowledge and experience will be used to address and identify viable solutions for various community and economic issues facing the Eastern Upper Peninsula—and the counties and municipalities within.

The REDAC will act as the steering committee for other economic development district planning efforts of the Eastern Upper Peninsula led by EUPRPDC. Furthermore, the REDAC will assist EUPRDPC in identifying projects that could be pursued by EUPRPDC and regional stakeholders that would help the Eastern Upper Peninsula carry out strategies identified in the economic development blueprint of the Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy 5-Year Plan.

Click here for the 2020-21 REDAC member listing.

The REDAC’s meeting schedule is posted on our calendar. Meetings are open to the public.

The REDAC is representative of the overall economic interests of the Eastern UP.

If you or your organization would like to participate on the REDAC, please contact us!

All meetings on 9am EST, unless otherwise noted.
