Summary

The Clinton County (New York) Community Development Center (CDC) system was examined to determine its appropriateness for Cooperative Extension Services. Nine active CDC's were investigated via personal interviews and report review to assess CDC scope, activities, audiences, successes, failures, local government support, and potentials. Emphasizing the necessity for a systematic flow of information, findings indicated that successful CDC's should make provisions for: (1) definitive goals and objectives; (2) evaluation of objectives; (3) the director's role, employment guidelines, and pre-job and on-job training; (4) decisions about CDC policy making and implementation; (5) CDC location and facility availability; and (6) CDC relationship and coordination with other centers, community organizatns, and extra-community agencies. It was concluded that Cooperative Extension could provide CDC with support and leadership via: (1) record keeping, reporting to town officials, and publicity; (2) educational provisions for middle class families in addition to established low income educational provisions; (3) educational provisions for CDC directors (a 16 week course on decision making, supervision, etc.); (4) provision for systematic performance evaluation; and (5) assistance in extended involvement of community volunteers to facilitate CDC communications.
