Economic Research

The Southern Ocean County Chamber Regional Business Development Plan created a council of regional partners exploring Southern Ocean County’s strengths. Together we created a shared action plan to stimulate interest in new investment as well as provide existing business with an accurate picture to help growth.

With representation from key business districts, as well as state, county and higher education liaisons, we provide reports with guidance to support a vibrant business economy while preserving the integrity of the small-town environment of our region. This report allows our staff, Board of Directors and committees to focus on creating programs and partnerships that will support the data and strategies gathered from our research.
