Please explain the concept of 'one' when to use 'are' and 'is' ?
Thanks :)

Hi Shivikaa, it isn't strictly about the usage of one, but about the usage of that.

....large number of communities on the Great Lakes that is/are looking to...

Whether the verb should be is or are, depends on what that is modifying. Here, that is modifying communities (plural) and hence, are is the correct verb.

p.s. Our book EducationAisle Sentence Correction Nirvana discusses usage of that, its application and examples in significant detail. If someone is interested, PM me your email-id; I can mail the corresponding section.
