Harbor Country Community Needs Assessment Outcomes
On September 24, 2018, The Pokagon Fund sponsored a series of meetings for Community Needs Assessment by the Community Economic Development Association of Michigan. That day, four focus groups and a region-wide meeting were held throughout Harbor Country to identify the most pressing needs in our community that need to be addressed cooperatively and collectively over the next 3-5 years. You are invited to a follow-up meeting on Tuesday, December 11, 7:00 pm, at New Buffalo Township Library, to hear the outcomes of those meetings. If you aren’t able to attend the 7:00 pm meeting, there will also be an earlier meeting held at 1:00 pm at Harbor Country Chamber of Commerce in Three Oaks. Please RSVP via email to
