The updated Naturally Lewis website was designed and developed in partnership with the Lewis County Economic Development office and Coughlin Printing of Lowville, NY, and is used for the promotion of Lewis County and the outreach to businesses within targeted industries identified by Lewis County (Dairy & Food Processing, Natural Resource Based Industries & Small/Cottage Businesses). The intent is to encourage business start-ups and growth of existing businesses within Lewis County. The website also promotes the "Lewis Life," promoting Lewis County tourism and outdoor recreation.
