One way communities often try and grow their local economy is through business development. It was in this spirit that the county and city first started talking about developing a business park. The hope was to create a place for growing business to expand and also a place that would potentially attract new businesses to the area. There was even hope that the developed area would increase the number of non-tourist based jobs. But, what if you built a park and nobody came? That’s part of what’s happened at the Cedar Grove Business Park in Grand Marais. WTIP’s Carah Thomas has this report in our ongoing series “Living on the Edge: Exploring Economic Reality in Cook County.”
