Project Approach 

The North Lewis County Industrial Access (NLCIA) study effort is tapping local, regional, and state expertise to identify a suite of measures that will enhance Lewis County’s ability to attract and retain good quality jobs. Community engagement is the overarching element of the project approach and active participation from the public and members of the advisory committees are essential for its success.

The project began by “casting a big net” to identify all potential strategies. The preliminary list of potential solutions will be vetted through the stakeholder advisory committees and go through a series of progressively robust analyses to identify those with the greatest potential to support industrial development and growth

The result will be a strategic action plan with a series of incremental decisions and investments that contribute toward the overall objective of growing a stronger and more resilient local economy.
