The verdict is in! If you don’t live in Norman County, you should. According to the U.S. Census, in 1980 the county population was 9379, in 2010 it was 6852. The Norman County Economic Development Authority contracted with the U of M Extension to examine what could be done to turn this trend around.

 The project, Making it Home (Brain Gain), took five months and included five volunteer study groups which met around the county to discuss strengths and opportunities in their areas. In April they completed the U of M Making it Home, “Brain Gain” project and a final public presentation and workgroup sessions. study groups and residents in attendance agreed that Norman County has a variety of positives to offer. They include extensive recreation, strong schools, active community groups, a good cost of living and an overall desirable quality of life.
