Regional Housing Study
In early 2015, LOREDC partnered with RDG Planning & Design to develop a comprehensive Lake of the Ozarks Housing Study to outline the current housing conditions and address the housing needs of Camden, Miller and Morgan counties. LOREDC understands how housing development affects the economic forces of the community on both a local and regional basis. The housing study was completed in 2016 and was made possible because of the many business and community financial partners and LOREDC's Housing Committee members who put in many hours facilitating the project. The completed study shows a detailed profile of the region, defines our current housing issues and discusses challenges and possible directions to move forward. LOREDC's next priority for this project is to develop a task force to help implement the study in our region.

Through a partnership with the Lake of the Ozarks Council of Local Governments (LOCLG), communities can receive assistance in identifying, populating and listing properties and sites on the Missouri Location One website. Missouri Location One is a searchable economic development database for detailed information on development sites, buildings and locations for businesses to grow. LOREDC recognizes that Location One is the leading online economic development site selection tool in the United States, and by assisting communities in providing comprehensive and up to date information, is a value to the entire LOREDC region. In 2016, many LROEDC communities increased their site listings from previous years on Missouri Location One with the assistance of LOCLG. This is an ongoing program with continued focus in 2017.

Partners in Marketing Program
LOREDC continues the Partners in Marketing Program to promote alignment with other partners and organizations within Camden, Miller and Morgan Counties. The program's intent is to provide funding through an application process for professional marketing components to aid in the stability and growth of the Lake of the Ozarks area. In 2016, a $1,000 grant was distributed.

LOREDC partnered with Ameren Missouri to complete the 2016 Regional Workforce Profile. The report provides an industrial and demographic overview of the Lake of the Ozarks region. It contains a comprehensive assessment of our economic base, competitive attributes, and population and workforce trends.
