The Lake Area Improvement Corporation kicked off its Forward Madison-4 Campaign Tuesday evening with the introduction of a new executive director for the organization. LAIC Board President Terry Schultz introduced Brooke Rollag as the organization’s new executive director, who is scheduled to start in the position on October 18th. Rollag told those attending the kickoff event that they have accomplished so much, but there is always more to do.
Rollag said she is the mother to four boys, has worked in banking for around fifteen years, and has volunteered with Colman Economic Development for ten years.
Schultz last evening outlined some of what the LAIC accomplished in its last capital campaign, including the Downtown Facade program.
Schultz also talked about all that has taken place within the Lakeview Industrial Park in the last five years, including the newest project.
Schultz said that Global Polymer has acquired more land for expansion in the Industrial Park, and there are the new Infotech Solutions, Runnings, Midwest House Movers, and Best Western Plus Hotel buildings. He said that two left hand turn lanes are being put in on Highway 34 at Division and Industry Avenues for better access to the Industrial Park.
Looking forward, Schultz told those attending what the goals are for the Forward Madison-4 Campaign.
Schultz said that so far the Forward Madison-4 Campaign has received more than 365-thousand dollars in funding.
