As the owner and operator of over 1,100 units of affordable housing throughout Washington County, we play a critical role ensuring that all our neighbors have a good, safe, and decent place to call home.
But community development goes beyond housing.
From facilitating the growth of small businesses to funding critical services for the homeless.
From helping economically vulnerable members of our community find the confidence that comes from economic self-sufficiency to financing for fixer-upper projects that help older homes shine once again.
Our job is to make a great place to live and work even better. The video below provides one example of how we’re doing that.

Safe homes for 2,000
As winter approaches, it’s a good time to begin planning for next year’s home improvement projects. Whether you’re looking to replace a roof, make your home more energy efficient, or replace a failing septic system, the CDA can help with a variety of low-interest loans and grants to get your plans off the ground. Visit our Home Improvement Program page for more information.
The City of Mahtomedi approached us to help fulfill a vision to redevelop the former Piccadilly Restaurant, which closed in 2006. Situated at a gateway to the downtown area, the restaurant had fallen into disrepair, which had a blighting impact on the community.
Opened in 2016, Piccadilly Square has won national awards for design and provides 79 units of quality housing, giving seniors a place to grow older with dignity. What had become a problem for the community is now a vital asset that generates new interest in the downtown area.
The Glen at Valley Creek is the CDA’s latest project, located near Valley Creek Dr. and Tower Dr. in the heart of Woodbury. When completed, we anticipate The Glen will include 42 one and two-bedroom units for seniors age 62+. Units will include thoughtful design features that can adapt as the needs of residents change with age. On-site staff will be available to assist residents with coordinating transportation, housekeeping, and personal care services as those become desired or necessary. And all of this will be available at a location that provides residents with easy access to shopping, health care facilities, and recreational opportunities like the Tamarack Nature Preserve.
