Welcome to the Twin Cities CDC
We are "Going Green" in 2013
"Building Foundations for Powerful Communities"
The Twin Cities Community Development Corporation (CDC) is a membership organization led by the diverse resident and business communities of Fitchburg and Leominster. We invest in and organize the residents of these cities to help build assets such as quality housing, good jobs, strong businesses and effective leaders. We envision healthy neighborhoods where residents choose to live, work, and invest, thereby forming a powerful, unified community.
Our current focus in Fitchburg is the Elm Street Area Neighborhood north of Main Street. Our plan combines the efforts of many CDC departments -- Community Organizing, Small Business, Housing Development, and Homeownership - to generate a renewed sense of pride and ownership in the neighborhood, in the downtown business district, and in Fitchburg. In addition to extensive housing construction and rehabilitation in the neighborhood, the plan includes the recent conversion of 470 Main Street from a mostly-vacant bank building into a multi-use building including 31 units of quality, affordable housing, Homeownership and Small Business Assistance Centers, and our current offices.
In Leominster, we have just completed construction on 40 units of LEED-certified, quality, affordable housing. The building provides community meeting space and CDC offices and is an anchor in the City of Leominster's redevelopment of the historic Comb & Carriage District.
