From the Director’s Desk: Year-in-Review 2017

I think we can all agree that economic development doesn’t happen overnight. “It’s a marathon, not a sprint,” as the saying goes. So, with the end of another year upon us, I thought I would do a recap on the strides we have made in our marathon towards a stronger county.

Here are a few of this year’s stats:

• At least 10 new businesses opened in the county this year. (There’s a chance we can squeak out two more by the end of the year but I don’t want to jinx it by including them prematurely.) The new businesses in Lincoln are: Catering with Grace, Mainstreet Loft, Three Amigos Mexican Restaurant, Liz Burt Guest House, Island Daycare, Law Office of B. Truman Steen, and Tangerine Tumbleweed. Two new businesses have opened at Wilson Lake (on our side of the county line) including Hell Creek Cabins and Hell Creek Watersports. And there is one new hunting lodge business up near Hunter, Huntsmen Lodge.
