Ribbon Cutting!

The Swedish Immigrant Trail Ribbon Cutting was held on October 10. The celebration was for the opening of the newly constructed Interstate State Park segment.

This segment is a wonderful addition to this regional trail, and a great asset that will connect people to the outdoors and create opportunities among trail communities. 

Thanks to the Chisago County Board, Park Board, and State Legislators for funding the trail. This portion of the trail was funded in part by a Minnesota LCCMR grant. 

The Chisago County Board of Commissioners proclaimed the week of October 4-10 as Manufacturers Week in Chisago County. The county board and HRA-EDA would like to extend our appreciation for all manufacturing businesses that operate and grow their business in the county. Your business is a vital part of the local economy providing good jobs and economic vitality.
