We strongly believe that having outstanding local communities is vital to retaining and attracting people who want to live, work, raise families and retire in Lenawee County.
As an all volunteer collaboration that recognizes great places are as important as any job creation strategy, we utilize grass-roots energies and passion to bring attention and action to important issues. Together with partner organizations and committed individuals, we are about making and keeping Lenawee County a Great Place.
We have divided our attentions into different aspects of life in the county, and each of these areas or “strands” reaches out to organizations and individuals engaged in these areas. We strive to keep our attention on the Big Picture, while supporting specific actions, convening, connecting, and at times initiating specific projects.
Our key partner is the county’s economic development organization, Lenawee Now, the Lenawee Economic Development Corporation. One Lenawee’s efforts are designed to support and compliment those of Lenawee Now.

One Lenawee Strategy to Bring About the Vision:
