SHELL ROCK COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT CORPORATION
The Shell Rock Development Corporation is a 501c3 nonprofit organization was developed in the late 1960's. Its mission is to promote and expand economic and community development opportunities that improve the quality of life for Shell Rock residents, businesses, and visitors. At the time of its inception, Shell Rock residents had many ideas of projects that would help grow and enhance the community, one of which was a public swimming pool. Thus, the community rallied around a fundraising campaign to bring a new pool to the town. Over time, the SRDC has become known for supporting a variety of community betterment and development projects.
Recent community and economic development initiatives include:
acquiring land for commercial development including Roling Ford and the Waverly Health Center
acquiring lots for residential development
remodeling of the city park, including tennis courts, playground, and ball diamonds
Shell Rock 4th of July activities
Shell Rock Sportsman's Club
