Community Development Alternatives has been involved in both securing and implementing public facilities projects for a number of Southwest Wisconsin communities. By coupling municipal grants with low-interest financing, CDA enables communities to increase utility efficiency for the municipality and reduce utility rates for its citizens.  Moreover, public facility improvements pave the way for economic development by improving the capacity and curb appeal for prospective businesses.  

Most importantly, public facility improvements restore a sense of well-being and quality of life to communities ravaged by natural disaster or overwhelmed by failing systems.  Very often the residents of communities we assist are either elderly or low income, unable to withstand the financial burden of disaster events or significant increases in utility rates.  The convergence of natural disaster events and a low-income population creates an untenable dilemma for Village officials as they grapple with antiquated utilities.  

CDA’s experienced staff considers all of these factors – from public need to financial capacity – in determining the best way to accomplish public facility projects.  And in the process, restores a community’s sense of confidence.
