Clearly Kosciusko Member Spotlight – Warsaw Community Development Corporation

Friday, September 11, 2020

We appreciate and support all of our members. The Clearly Kosciusko Member Spotlight is a way for our members to highlight their organization or business and for us to show how much we appreciate their participation. 

The Clearly Kosciusko member we’re shining the spotlight on this month is the Warsaw Community Development Corporation (WCDC). This not-for-profit corporation’s mission is to encourage the economic growth and development of Warsaw’s Central Business District. The WCDC accomplishes this by investing locally in people, buildings, businesses, and land.

If you’d like to have your business or organization featured, consider joining Clearly Kosciusko for free!

About The Warsaw Community Development Corporation (WCDC)

The WCDC began in 1976 as a group of business people concerned about problems that were showing up in the Central Business District of Warsaw. Their goal was to find solutions to problems that included vacant buildings, traffic flow, parking, and deteriorating storefronts. 

The association was officially formed in 1980 and has been working ever since to revitalize downtown Warsaw. The WCDC supports downtown Warsaw businesses by providing marketing opportunities, grant and loan opportunities, encouraging community engagement and serving as a resource for additional business assistance.

Local businesses and individuals are encouraged to become members of the WCDC as part of the ongoing community effort to promote and sustain the downtown Warsaw area. Membership helps the WCDC improve economic management, encourage public participation, and attract new businesses designed to thrive in the downtown Warsaw community.

Supporting Our Local Community

The WCDC partners with many local organizations throughout Kosciusko County. They believe that if the community around Warsaw is stronger, it will result in a thriving Central Business District in Warsaw.

Why Clearly Kosciusko?

Warsaw Community Development Corporation made the decision to join Clearly Kosciusko because we wanted to be a part of celebrating Kosciusko County! We enjoy collaborating with other local entities to create a unified vision for our community. Clearly Kosciusko provides us with a great avenue to do just that.

Rob Parker, President & CEO of WCDC
