Podcast Episode 71 - Both a Planning Agency and an EDO With Chris Setti

Table of Contents

In this episode, Dane talks with Chris Setti, the CEO of the Greater Peoria Economic Development Council.

The GPEDC is both a planning agency and a traditional ED practitioner. They are the official steward of the Greater Peoria Economic Development District on behalf of the US EDA, and are responsible for the creation and stewardship of the regional Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy. They are also tasked with all the traditional ED activities like business attraction, BRE, startup, etc.

In almost every other place, the "planning" function would be done by a regional planning commission or council of government and the "working" function done by a 501c6/c3 EDO.

Chris gets to do both, and it's very cool.
