Why We Are Here

The dawn of a new era - Life’s All Here

In 2017 and 2018 a significant investment in time and people was made to create Vision 2022, a community-driven movement in Manitowoc County.  The goals were to ignite change, foster collaboration and establish a unified course for the future. 

Through the work of Vision 2022 (led by community leaders and involved citizens) and the Collaborative Branding Team (led by The Chamber - Manitowoc County) the need for a unified and new community brand and single information source was identified.  Thousands of  people were involved in this process.   We listened to input from over 3500 people and picked up where well-intentioned work left off.  

Life's ALL Here!  speaks with energy and inclusivity to the unique resources and opportunities that we have in Manitowoc County.  It is simple, convenient, comprehensive and available 24/7!

The site is built on powerful technology used by some of the top brands in the world. It adapts automatically to your computer, tablet or smart phone.  We work continuously on updates, interactivity and life information.  Why?  Because life here doesn’t stop happening.  Nor do you.  Nor do we.  


Give us your thoughts!  We promise to listen and continue to make this site better for you.
