Shaping the vision for the future.
It takes everyone in a community to make it successful, but someone has to take the lead. In Lindsay, that’s LAD.
The Lindsay Area Development has a résumé of accomplishments beyond its five years of existence, with much more on the horizon.
In 2017, a group of friends started talking about the community, what they would like Lindsay to look like,
and decided they should do more than just talk about it.
Multi-Purpose Community Events & Fitness Center
A multi-purpose facility that will include space for:
Retain and Attract Businesses
A thriving community requires a wide array of businesses and services to meet the needs of it's residents. LAD is continuously seeking feedback and developing partnerships to bring businesses together.
Public Infrastructure (Water Tower & Street Improvements)
During the 2017 strategic planning process in partnership with Northeast Nebraska Economic Development group and the Village of Lindsay, it was identified that in order to support the growth and expansion of the community a new water tower was needed and improvements to the streets. Investing $5.2M to this initiative with the water tower construction completed in 2018 and street improvements completed 2018 - 2021.
Park Amenities: Equipment and Walking Trail
Lindsay Area Development with the Village of Lindsay were awarded a grant from the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission for $250,000 to build a 4,500-foot-long (.85 mile) concrete trail for pedestrians and bicyclists around the village park. This will be a great addition to the park and provide a safe option for walking/running and biking.
