The plan to merge all of Erie County's economic development efforts into one group apparently intrigues officials at Greater Erie Marketing Group Inc., but many details remain to be worked out.

The Grow Erie County proposal, brought forward by a group of community leaders, suggests that combining the separate economic development efforts of the City of Sandusky, Erie County, GEM and other groups into one clearinghouse organization might stimulate economic growth and development.

The proposal also suggested interested parties discuss possible ways to structure that new group, such as forming an economic development corporation or setting up a port authority.
