Local Development Corporation

What is an LDC?

Local Development Corporations (LDCs) are private, not-for-profit corporations often created by, or for the benefit of, local governments for economic development or other public purposes. LDCs, as well as certain other types of private entities (e.g., limited liability companies), are being utilized with increasing frequency by counties, cities, towns, villages, and fire districts to finance local government operations and projects. To learn more about Local Development Corporations, click on this publication from the New York State Comptrollers Office. 

Minutes are available online once they have been approved by the boardYou can view them in the Local Development Corporation (LDC) folder within our Document Center.

Notices for meetings and public hearings will be posted on The Town of Wawayanda Website. Notices for public hearings will be published in the Times Herald Record Newspaper and they can be found online at New York Public Hearings / Public Notices.
