The executive committee of Grow Erie Marketing Group Inc. has endorsed forming a new economic development organization with local governments and private groups, said James Smith, chairman of the committee and dean of BGSU Firelands.

The concept of providing a regional office to handle economic development matters is similar to the ideas that have been advanced by Grow Erie County, but the resolution doesn't endorse using that name or any other specific proposal.
