Rushford Trees, Trails and Parks Board
The Trees, Trails and Parks (TTP) Board has developed a Work Plan for 2016-2017 that includes Landscape Projects as a high priority. The plan includes beautifying downtown streets and highway entrances.  The TTP Board would like input from business owners for the development of projects. All local business owners are invited to the next TTP Board meeting on Thursday, February 9 at 5:00 p.m. at Rushford City Hall to hear from the MN Department of Transportation regarding landscape possibilities and planning for projects.

Retail Gap Anaylsis:
As noted in last month's newsletter, EDA Coordinator Donna Mack and Chamber Coordinator Jen Hengel are available to meet with individual businesses about the results of the University of MN Extension's Retail Gap Analysis for the Rushford trade area (a 15-minute drive time around Rushford). The report should be used as a starting point for considering possible business opportunities or the types of goods for which there may be a need in the area. Contact Jen Hengel (507-458-6253) or Donna Mack (651-380-1618) to set-up a time to meet regarding the gap analysis or business opportunities.
