Greetings! I am currently serving as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Ukraine. I am working on a regional planning project focusing on economic development for three satellite communites outside of a 1.5 million population urban center. My director is working under a EU grant to convert, in part, old Soviet military facilities in these cities to workable economic development opportunties. However, my background is more in physical planning. Can anyone give me the basic components to include in an economic development plan? Remember, this is REALLY a grassroots effort (hence my name) so think more of starting from a VERY basic beginning. I know to include aspects such as population, current workforce skills base, etc. Just need more direction. Crazy how we take such basic things such as open availability of census data for granted in the US!?! Thanks.
