Statewide legislation aims to promote economic growth in Alpena

ALPENA, Mich — New statewide policy by the Northern Michigan Chamber Alliance aims to attract more opportunities and growth in rural communities like Alpena.

The Chamber Alliance is calling it Four Pillars of Rural Prosperity. This 2019–2020 agenda focuses on economic growth, housing, talent attraction and better access to child care.

The legislation could recruit younger families to Alpena and offset housing costs through voucher and down payment programs. Follow the Northern Michigan Business Blog for updates.
