Areas of concern for business attraction to an area are vacant/abandoned buildings, limited housing, lack of medical care, lack of skilled workers and limited shopping and recreational opportunities. Recognizing what attracts companies and organizations, CLEDO supports infrastructure improvements, recreational activities, housing initiatives, “blight” property projects, initiatives to support Brownfield property cleanup and efforts to improve quality of life and sustainability for Logansport and Cass County.
To understand all of the efforts for local improvements, CLEDO is an active participant in Better Health of Cass County, United Way, Cass County Resource Network, the Employment Task Force of CCRN, Chamber of Commerce, France Park Access/Panhandle Trail Group, and two regional economic development groups — Indiana’s Technology Corridor and North Central Indiana Economic Development Partnership.
