We work closely with local units of government throughout the County to provide Commercial and Industrial sites. We achieve this by investing in business parks and redevelopment sites. We also specialize in accessing financial programs to assist businesses looking to expand and locate in Chisago County.

Community Development

In order to provide sufficient infrastructure for development, we assist our cities and townships to secure and administer local, state, and federal grants and loans. We also provide project planning and program implementation.
