Ringgold County Development Corporation Mission Statement:
RCDC is an Iowa nonprofit corporation formed in 1960. Our mission is to strengthen the economic well-being of Ringgold County through a commitment to business and industrial recruitment and retention; fostering a teleworking community that encourages professional growth and success; promoting recreation and tourism; and collaborating with local, regional, and state governments, as well as with our local schools and other area resources.
The Ringgold County Development Corporation (RCDC), an Iowa non-profit corporation, was organized in 1960 by interested business and community leaders to promote industrial and commercial development in Ringgold County. Anyone in Ringgold County can become a member for a stock membership fee of $5.00.
RCDC is managed by a Board of Directors made up of individuals covering all areas of Ringgold County. The Board is made up entirely of volunteers comprising a broad range of community, business, and government leaders. RCDC meets monthly on the 2nd Wednesday of each month at noon. We invite and welcome interested persons and all Board of Supervisors to attend these meetings. The Supervisors have been a valuable resource and a strong supporter of RCDC’s efforts over the years. This support and cooperation are greatly appreciated by RCDC. (contact RCDC office for meeting location).
One focus of Ringgold County Development Corporation is the development of the current Industrial Park. RCDC owns approximately 20 acres around the airport, and 65 acres south of the Country Club that are available for future economic development.
Jodie Geist is the current Director of Ringgold County Development Corporation and performs the day-to-day operations of RCDC. The Director stays active in local, regional and statewide economic development organizations to stay up to date on current events happening locally and around the state, and to be aware of and pursue funding opportunities that would benefit and grow Ringgold County
RCDC believes there have been many positive and important things take place in Ringgold County in the past few years; views Ringgold County as a vital part of the State of Iowa; and will continue in its efforts to collaborate with the County, all the County towns, and all its citizens to improve the quality of life in Ringgold County
