Southeast MN Economic Study
In the news:
Through a grant appropriation from DEED, in early 2018 SEMLM and CEDA engaged HR&A Advisors, Inc. to conduct a study to understand the economic growth facing cities and counties in Southeast Minnesota. The Southeast Minnesota Economic Impact Study aims to provide communities in the eight-county region with long-range population, employment, and economic forecasts at the county- and region-wide scales. These forecasts will equip municipalities, counties, and the Region with quality data that can inform long-range planning, guiding important municipal and county decision making for things like investment in new infrastructure and public works, municipal services and schools, land use planning, and strategic downtown planning, in addition to regional considerations about transportation investment and housing growth. With a clearer understanding of the future population and economy of Southeast Minnesota, the Region can work to ensure that this growth is equitable and sustainable, serving all residents and workers.
Registration begins early June
