Quality of Life and Economic Development in the Northland

Quality of life is a mushy topic, something that no two people measure the same way. It's a phrase one hears often in community and economic development to describe the combined effect of unique but interconnected and desirable qualities in a place, from education to healthcare to a clean environment. It's certainly not the first thing a site selector or growing business looks for when considering a move or an expansion. But that doesn't mean it doesn't matter, either, and in the end, it can make all the difference.
When Northspan revised the information presented on its
quality of life pages on Northland Connection
earlier this month, we made the changes with that sentiment in mind. Some changes were substantive, honing in on the information we think a newcomer to the Northland would find most valuable; others simply cut out less-than-useful information and improved the presentation. Our goal is to show how this region is truly unique, and we'll continue to refine it going forward, because stories like this never stop evolving. Northland Connection offers a property database ready to meet the needs of anyone from local business owners to national site selectors, a comprehensive array of economic and demographic data, immediate in-person support. But all of the data and professionalism in the world can still come up short if a place can't inspire an emotional pull to close a deal.
At Northspan, we know where the Northland's quality of life fits in to our story because we've lived it. Some members of our staff grew up here and never left, others of us aren't from here but are now putting down roots, and others of us started out here and went away before being lured back. We can all tell a story about the things that draw us in and keep us here, and with that sort of foundation, our work on behalf of our homes is only natural. It's what we're here for.
