The Florida Department of Economic Opportunity (DEO) will be hosting a series of workshops on Competitive Florida, a technical assistance program under development to help communities take steps to increase their level of competitiveness through asset-based economic development while staying true to what makes them unique places.
Such unique communities like the Historic City of Apalachicola, which already has a competitive edge in the value of its world renowned seafood, its pristine ecosystem and historical structures.
At the workshop DEO officials will share details about the new program, but most importantly they will be amenable to receiving input from the communities to make certain the program is developed in a way that addresses the needs of the communities.
