Community and Economic Development Readiness Assessment Guidebook and Questionnaire

This guidebook and readiness assessment tool were developed by the Oregon Economic and Community Development Department (OECDD) to help communities assess their business and community development capacity and to identify next steps in achieving their development goals. It provides a method to objectively assess your community’s development capacity from your own unique, individual perspective. The objectives of this guide are to present your understanding of your community and give you a sense of some of the complexities of community development that you may wish to become more familiar with.
