Community Development

Your Community Partner.

SENDD collaborates with communities to develop, fund and implement projects that preserve the quality of life in our region.

SENDD provides technical assistance to member communities  to address a variety of community development needs, including water and wastewater improvements, senior centers, community centers, recreation facilities, street and drainage improvements, community planning and other community facilities that enhance the quality of life in the our service area.  The SENDD staff provide project and grant development assistance, guidance in budgeting and financial management of capital improvement projects, community attitude and income surveys, state and federal grant administration, and other services as requested by member communities.

Community is much more than belonging to something; it’s about doing something together that makes belonging matter.
— Brian Solis

The services provided by SENDD to member communities are membership driven; staff assist local communities in accessing state and federal programs providing financial resources for critical community facilities. SENDD serves as a coordinating and implementation agency for regional programs and activities.
