About Louisa Development Group

Louisa Development Group (LDG) is a member supported economic development and marketing organization serving Louisa County, Iowa. LDG was founded in January 2004 because a group of motivated residents wanted to see an organized effort behind economic development and tourism

What We Do

Economic Development

Our first priority is to strengthen existing business. We then seek to build the infrastructure necessary to foster entrepreneurship and recruit industry.

LDG as a Chamber of Commerce

Without a formal Chamber of Commerce within the county, LDG services that role. Campaigns such as Shop Louisa encourage residents to spend their dollars at home.


The board of supervisors has appointed LDG as the tourism contact for the county. Tourism has a $11.35 million annual impact on our economy. Naturally Louisa County is a partnership with federal, state and local agencies to aggressively promote the use of our natural areas. Many flock to Louisa County to experience our cultural ambiance, browse through our detailed record of history and relax in the areas mother nature has preserved.
