Strategic Plan

On 5 October 2010, the C.D.C. unveiled a new economic-development strategic plan, Pulaski County: Mapping a Path Forward at a public hearing in Winamac. Developed from the input of local stakeholders, and formed through the efforts of a respected consulting firm the plan outlines the steps Pulaski County needs to take to become a more viable, healthy economic community. The plan was funded through a grant from the Indiana Office of Community and Rural Affairs.

In 2021, the C.D.C. established a Strategic Visioning Committee to develop a streamlined, updated plan to replace Mapping a Path Forward; on Tuesday, 2 November, the full Commission adopted Simply Pulaski: A Plan for Quality to guide its operations for the foreseeable future.

In 2022, tangential to the implementation of this County-level strategic plan, Pulaski County participated in the development of a six-county regional agricultural economic-development strategy funded by the Economic Development Administration through KIRPC. Indiana Economic Development Corporation READI funding was secured through the Northwest Indiana Forum to implement this strategy across the region; it aligns with the value-added–agriculture objective of Simply Pulaski’s Key Action Step III, “Targeted Industry Sectors”. The full strategy can be viewed here (externally hosted). (The four-page brochure for the strategy can be viewed here.

In early 2024, the Board of Commissioners adopted Simply Home, an addendum to 2021’s Simply Pulaski addressing residential development in Pulaski County.
