OSBM success

This isn’t just about numbers or academic pursuits. Data informs policy, as well as important decision. For example, we get a lot of inquiries from people thinking about relocating to the area in order to retire. They want to know about proximity to necessary services, such as healthcare, as well as entertainment and even the best fishing spots.
