Projects We’re Working On

Working with Our Thriving Community

The projects we’re working on at the Lac du Bonnet Community Development Corporation help increase the economic activity, growth, and diversity of Lac du Bonnet.

The Lac du Bonnet CDC prioritizes Asset Based Community Development, which means we spend most of our time working with the businesses, organizations, tourism assets, and quality-of-life attributes Lac du Bonnet is known for. Doing this allows the Lac du Bonnet CDC and its partners to work together to showcase what is already here. The Asset-Based Community Development method also allows the CDC and its partners to identify service gaps so we can work to support and enhance the community by attracting new businesses and services.

CDC Key Priorities

The LdB CDC focuses on four key priorities to achieve organizational and community goals. These priorities are broken down into many projects, goals, actions, and tasks. Many projects we work on overlap two or more of our key priorities, allowing us to maximize each project’s impact on the Lac du Bonnet community.

Marketing and Branding

Showcasing Lac du Bonnet as a community to Live, Work, Play, and Invest.
