Lakeshore growth outshines Midwest

Since 2010, Lakeshore Advantage has compiled an annual report on the economic outlook of Ottawa County. This year, it decided to enlist other agencies to add data from Muskegon and Allegan counties.


The 2017 West Michigan Lakeshore Region Business Intelligence report found the Allegan-Muskegon-Ottawa region outpaces the U.S. Midwest in business growth, sales, research and development by wide margins.


The lakeshore also scored higher for community strengths, such as quality of life, employee work ethic and business climate.
