Amador County has long experienced population decline and underemployment. The County Board of Supervisors decided that a plan is needed to help the County and local jurisdictions reverse these trends. In July 2020, the County started the process of creating a five-year Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS) that will help guide investment decisions on infrastructure, public works, and job-creating initiatives. 

The CEDS will address economic challenges and opportunities, and include an Action Plan for building a resilient local economy, increased commerce, and employment options.
