From an economic development and CDC perspective, the LEAP region is small (just three counties- Ingham, Eaton and Clinton), but beautifully manageable, and, thus, efficient and highly unified. The region is made up of a thriving central urban core/metropolitan area (Greater Lansing/East Lansing) that is highly represented by LEAP (under a specific contract with city of Lansing) and by excellent local partners. This leaves opportunity-filled outlying areas, otherwise known as “out county” that can use additional partnership, advocacy and appropriate assistance from LEAP both with project and programmatic development. Clinton County is represented by its own economic development organization as is Ingham County. Both are excellent and both are supportive of LEAP as is Eaton County, but minus a county-wide economic development representative.See full post.
