Oregon Economic Development Foundation to Launch Business Retention and Expansion Program 

      Over the next several weeks, nearly 1.000 businesses in Oregon will have an opportunity to help better understand the issues facing companies in today’s economy.  The Oregon Economic Development Foundation, the Eastern Maumee Bay Chamber of Commerce, assisted by Ohio State University Extension in Lucas County and the Ohio Sea Grant College Program is launching a Business Retention and Expansion Program to evaluate the local business climate and to assist existing businesses with expansion within the community.  The first phase of the project will involve surveying nearly 1,000 businesses on and around the Navarre Avenue business corridor.   After the survey data has been tabulated, the task force will examine the results and look for ways to assist businesses in Oregon with operations and potential expansion plans. 

Businesses are encouraged to complete and/or return the survey by May 24, 2019.
