The La Crosse Area Development Corporation (LADCO), the La Crosse Area Chamber of Commerce, The 7 Rivers Alliance, Downtown Mainstreet, Inc. and Explore La Crosse are working together gauge the current local business climate.

The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted the world’s economy in ways never anticipated, and the Coulee Region was no exception. As vaccines continue to be administered and the world’s economies start to bounce back, our local business support system, which include the aforementioned not-for-profits and local governments, are interested in gathering data on the local economy to better understand the current situation of our business, large and small.

Common indicators will include: 1.) Employment rate comparisons: pre-covid vs current 2.) Impacts of global economic conditions/travel bans 3.) Anticipated sales growth 4.) New product/market destinations 5.) Supporting infrastructure

We are making this survey open to all La Crosse County businesses to allow for well-represented data. Please note, this data will be shared with municipal leaders throughout La Crosse County to give better indications to where future assistance could have the largest impact.

We encourage ALL businesses to respond. Thank you all in advance for your participation. Our aspirations for the future economy of the Coulee Region are great, and we look forward to coming out of this pandemic with our business community leading the way. Again, thank you for your support.
