The Bay-Lake Regional Planning Commission is pleased to welcome
Cindy Wojtczak as its new Executive
Cindy started her career as an intern at the
Commission.That internship ultimately turned into a senior Economic
Planner position and nearly 20 years with Commission. In 2003,
Cindy left the Commission to become an Economic Planner and
Supervisor for Municipal Engineers with Ayres Associates.
Much of Cindy's time involves undertaking a variety of
planning projects with an emphasis on Economic Planning, and grant
writing and administration. She has brought millions of dollars
into the region through her grant writing, most of which was for
public infrastructure projects like water towers, wastewater
treatment plants, new wells, sewer and water system improvements,
park improvements, special studies, and street improvements.
Please welcome Cindy to the Commission by contacting
her at firstname.lastname@example.org
or (920) 448-2820.

2015 Community and Economic Development Project Inventory
As a service to the communities within the Bay-Lake Regional
Planning Commission's eight county region, the Commission is
currently conducting its annual solicitation of community and
economic development projects. The solicitation is to gather
information on proposed projects that could be included as a part
of the Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS) and for
possible integration into the Commission's rolling two-year Work
Program. A copy of the survey has be sent to the clerks at
the town, village, and city levels, along with a number of planning
and economic development staff members. Projects identified should
represent a "priority list" to include items such as industrial
park development or improvements, public facilities upgrades,
business incubators, transportation infrastructure, park
enhancements, plan updates (e.g., comprehensive plans), or planning
projects that will result in sustainable economic development for
your respective community, county, or region.

Affordable Office Space for Rent
The Commission has two open offices that it is willing to
sub-lease on a short or longer term basis to an organization
seeking good, quality office space that is close to downtown
amenities. The reduced lease rate (includes
utilities) is $7.00 a sq.ft. for the year. Parking spaces are
$15.00 per month. The staff will work with any organization on
their internet and phone service needs, which will be separate from
the Commission's current operating system.
Commission staff are continuing to accept requests for
demographic and economic information using EMSI software. All
counties and local units of government, along with planning and
economic development partners, are eligible to receive this service
through the Commission. The data found on EMSI Developer and the
reports generated using the information can be very valuable in
drafting grant applications, preparing site search proposals, as
well as evaluating local and regional economic conditions for
future projects and investments.
Please contact Brandon Robinson or Josh Schedler at (920)
448-2820 for questions/concerns or to submit an EMSI
Developer data request.
