Local Development Finance Authority

Local Development Finance Authority

The Local Downtown Finance Authority promotes and develops the Grand Ledge Willis Industrial Park on M-100 on the north side of the City.

It is a nine-member board representing the City, and Eaton County and Lansing Community College because the Authority captures taxes levied by Eaton County and Lansing Community College. The Mayor appoints seven members to the LDFA for four-year terms expiring 25 August, and both Eaton County and Lansing Community College appoint their own representatives. The LDFA meets as needed, in the Council Chambers, City Hall, 310 Greenwood St.

For more information about the Local Development Finance Authority, contact the City Manager, Adam Smith, via ASmith@cityofgrandledge.com or at (517) 627-1249. Agendas, meeting packets, and minutes are available online.
