I want to advise you that NCI has taken action to support North County’s residents, municipalities, schools, business and others. Resulting from the recent article on North County housing published in the Post-Dispatch on August 18th, I have heard from many NCI members, area residents, elected officials and concerned business owners. We have sent a response to the Editor pointing out how the article could have covered the story by incorporating more balance in their report. Please take time to review NCI’s response.CLICK HERE for copy of letter. We have also requested a meeting with the Editor and will keep our membership posted on the results. North County has a tremendous number of assets and offers a great quality of life. Take a look at the recent North County Economic Development Profile produced for us by the Public Policy Research Center to learn more about our great community.
