Development Authority Launches New Website
The Development Authority of the North Country has launched a new website to make it easier for community partners and the public to find information about the organization. The website is still located at the same address: www.danc.org, but it has an entirely new look.
Website visitors can find general information about the Development Authority and what it does by clicking on drop-down menus at the top of the home page. Icons at the bottom of the home page organize information about loan programs, job openings, bids, municipal studies and services that the Authority offers to communities. A dedicated GIS (Geographic Information System) button makes it easy for the public to access stored geographic data. The Development Authority hosts GIS data on its website for more than 60 North Country communities.
The Development Authority is also assisting several communities with consolidation or shared services studies and all the information pertaining to those studies can be found on the Authority’s website under “Municipal Studies,” arranged by community.
The latest on the Joint Land Use Study, a cooperative planning effort that the Authority is coordinating for Fort Drum, can also be found on the website. Eventually the JLUS will have a stand-alone website.
