The Economic Resilience of Coastal Communities: Survey Results from Interviews with Local Leaders

OHSU-TS-1505
ABSTRACT:

This report summarizes the main findings from a survey of 61 local leaders from the Ohio Lake Erie Watershed, half of whom come from municipal governments. Other respondents are at higher levels of government or in the private and nonprofit sectors. These leaders hold various positions of leadership in their organizations, such as the mayor or city manager, agency director, or commissioner. In an open question, we asked the respondents to list their three biggest threats to economic growth in their local communities. Economic concerns such as unemployment and business closures were mentioned by 60 percent of respondents, but almost half indicated that lack of leadership and governmental barriers are threats to economic stability and growth. Another third noted concerns regarding the natural or physical environment. All but two respondents were either “very” or “somewhat” worried about the threats posed by their top concern. Local leaders were also asked numerous questions about their policy responses to the threats listed. A wide variety of approaches are utilized, and the top approach, business programs and incentives, were the first listed approach of only 20 percent of respondents. Notably, around 11 percent also claimed that nothing is being done to address the threats. More specifically, respondents were asked to categorize their approaches to business attraction. Almost one-third pursue a passive “reactive-focused” approach that involves catering to whatever businesses show interest in the community. Only 11 percent report that their primary attraction approach is to attempt to diversify their economies by attracting businesses in industries that are in different industries than those that currently drive their local economies.

Finally, respondents were asked about their approaches to business retention. By far, the most common approach (one-third of responses) involved fostering an open dialogue with local business owners. Again, around 11 percent reported doing nothing to address the threats.

Ohio's Lake Erie Marina Industry Business Retention & Expansion Program 2015 Final Report

OHSU-TS-1504

Summary of program to assist marinas in achieving their growth objectives and to improve the overall business environment of Ohio’s Lake Erie Marina Industry.

ABSTRACT:

The Ohio Sea Grant College Program partnered with state-wide agencies to examine the needs of Ohio’s Lake Erie Marina Industry through a Business Retention and Expansion (BR&E) survey. The survey of existing marina businesses along Ohio’s Lake Erie coastline was a component of a multi-county BR&E program that encompassed Lucas, Ottawa, Erie, Lorain, Cuyahoga, Lake and Ashtabula counties. It was part of an on-going economic development effort to stabilize and grow the local economy and improve quality of life. As a result of the business retention and expansion program conducted in 2014-2015, Ohio Sea Grant, the Lake Erie Marine Trades Association and Ohio Department of Natural Resources Office of Coastal Management learned that Ohio’s Lake Erie Marina Industry plans to retain between 566-1,011 jobs with the intent of creating approximately 26-41 new jobs in the next year as a result of business expansion. Moreover, 26-41 new jobs in Ohio’s Lake Erie Marina Industry has the potential to create an additional $52,349 in local income tax collection and add approximately $1,247,015 in personal income to Ohio’s Lake Erie coastal communities.

Copper Concentrations at Lake Erie Marinas

OHSU-TS-1500

Summary of a Clean Marinas project evaluating the impact of copper-based boat paint on sediments near Lake Erie marinas.

ABSTRACT:

The Ohio Clean Marinas Program, with a grant from the Ohio Lake Erie Commission’s Lake Erie Protection Fund, performed a study on copper concentrations at Lake Erie marinas. In collaboration with Bowling Green State University and Lake Erie marinas, data was collected on copper accumulation in sediment over the course of one boating season. The results will aid scientists, agencies, marina owners, and boaters in obtaining a better picture of the contribution of boat bottom wash wastewater to copper concentrations in Lake Erie nearshore sediments, and in finding sustainable solutions for boat bottom washing.
