In 2009, the Community Development Department (CDD) was created to promote and facilitate business development, to create and implement economic development strategy, and to strengthen ties with the private sector.
CDD is evolving to become a policy-oriented, fast-moving department within the Township. We work with the private sector, within township government and in partnership with other agencies, state legislators and business groups. We take a networking, problem-solving approach.
We pride ourselves in being responsive to your needs.
Staff competencies include finance, recruitment, and small business development.
Some of our local partners include: the Lansing Regional Chamber of Commerce (LRCC), the Greater Lansing Convention and Visitors Bureau (GLCVB), Tri-County Regional Planning Commision (TCRPC), the Clinton County Economic Alliance (CCEA), and the Lansing Economic Area Partnership (LEAP).
