About Lake Area Community Development Corporation (LACDC) 

Lake of the Ozarks Regional Economic Development Council (LOREDC) updated its 2016 housing study that was performed by the consulting firm, RDG Planning and Design. The updated housing study showcases the demands, deficits of supply, and investment opportunities across different housing classifications in the Lake of the Ozarks Region.

In the fall of 2021, RDG Planning and Design collected information from the 2020 Census and new residential construction numbers of 2017 through 2021. The significant findings were the following:

Total demand for housing across the lake region includes

  • 5,000 units over the next 5 plus years

  • 2,500 single family homes throughout the four counties

Workforce Affordable housing

  • 1,250 units under $200,000

  • 1,250 units $200,00 - $325,000


  • 2,000 units total 5 years


Further, the non-profit, regional Lake Area Community Development Corporation (LACDC) was formed to provide funding opportunities for home builders and buyers to leverage local resources toward workforce housing expansion through the housing study.

LACDC hired Lake of the Ozarks Council of Local Governments to manage the day-to-day operations for the LACDC. LOCLG will be working with counties and communities within the region to find available land, as well as, build connections with developers and home builders to meet the housing demand.
