It’s nice that Muskegon is the winner of the Strongest Town award….it has always dealt with challenges and continues to do so.

While the city has a population of 38,000, the county is at 173,000….not necessarily a growth environment compared to the Research Triangle .

What it does have is a mix of manufacturing/tourism….excellent community college and a 4-yr college (Baker)….a continuing developing waterfront….a renowned art museum and most of all access to fresh water.

While winters can be tiresome….the Great Lakes does have a decided advantage (fresh water) in the national and worlds economy.
