Local Development Corporation

The incentive programs developed by the LDC helped accelerate the development of Lake Drum.  The LDC put my dream of opening my own brewery on the fast track to reality.

The Geneva Development Corporation was chartered to support economic development and neighborhood revitalization efforts in the City.  The agency has developed a number of programs to support small business development, including the business plan competition, “Race for the Space” and the live local campaign “Live Where You Work.”

In addition to supporting small business and home ownership opportunities, the agency can offer financing support to not-for-profit agencies through the Civic Facilities Bonding Program.
