2015 Community and Economic Development Project Inventory

As a service to the communities within the Bay-Lake Regional Planning Commission's eight county region, the Commission is currently conducting its annual solicitation of community and economic development projects. The solicitation is to gather information on proposed projects that could be included as a part of the Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS) and for possible integration into the Commission's rolling two-year Work Program. A copy of the survey has be sent to the clerks at the town, village, and city levels, along with a number of planning and economic development staff members. Projects identified should represent a "priority list" to include items such as industrial park development or improvements, public facilities upgrades, business incubators, transportation infrastructure, park enhancements, plan updates (e.g., comprehensive plans), or planning projects that will result in sustainable economic development for your respective community, county, or region.

Contact Cindy Wojtczak for more information regarding the Community Survey.

Affordable Office Space for Rent

The Commission has two open offices that it is willing to sub-lease on a short or longer term basis to an organization seeking good, quality office space that is close to downtown amenities. The reduced lease rate (includes utilities) is $7.00 a sq.ft. for the year. Parking spaces are $15.00 per month. The staff will work with any organization on their internet and phone service needs, which will be separate from the Commission's current operating system.

EMSI Developer

Commission staff are continuing to accept requests for demographic and economic information using EMSI software. All counties and local units of government, along with planning and economic development partners, are eligible to receive this service through the Commission. The data found on EMSI Developer and the reports generated using the information can be very valuable in drafting grant applications, preparing site search proposals, as well as evaluating local and regional economic conditions for future projects and investments.

Please contact Brandon Robinson or Josh Schedler at (920) 448-2820 for questions/concerns or to submit an EMSI Developer data request.
