Our Community  NEW COPY COMING ….

The CDC is involved in a number of projects that benefit the overall economic welfare and potential of the region as well as several individual communities.

The CDC, acting with advice from its members and a member-based Board of Directors, works in partnership with the Quaboag Valley Business Assistance Corporation, and Quaboag Valley Chamber of Commerce and other regional organizations to provide a wide range of programs and services to enhance the economic climate of our region.


As a result of collaborative efforts between the Quaboag Valley CDC and the Quaboag Valley Chamber of Commerce, the Quaboag Hills logo and theme were developed in 2000.  Subsequently, the Chamber changed its name to the Quaboag Hills Chamber of Commerce. The goal of this collaborative project was to provide the 15 towns in the region with a common vision of the beauty and natural resources of the area and to develop a theme around which new and growing businesses might develop and expand. Tourism development is one additional tool in the arsenal against unemployment and underemployment in the region that the CDC and Chamber ontinue to support.
