The MMDC collaborates with businesses, organizations, and local units of government to improve our region. We work to make life better for all of our region's residents!
The MMDC’s continued mission is to “To administer state and federal programs and coordinate multi-jurisdictional activities, and to provide technical assistance to government, business, and local organizations in order to maintain and enhance the quality of life and support economic development.”
What does this mean?
It means that we partner with our communities to ensure a “success infrastructure” is in place. Our work can include helping communities gain input from their residents and use that information to develop plans for future development, otherwise known as “comprehensive planning”. We can also work with local elected officials and planning commissions to ensure that community codes and ordinances preserve community standards without becoming overly-restrictive. Furthermore, we can team with communities and organizations to market business opportunities, pursue infrastructure grants that will promote growth, and address underlying issues that may be inhibiting growth and/or sustainability (e.g. housing or childcare shortages).
The MMDC strives to promote thoughtful development, leadership, entrepreneurship, collaboration, and equity throughout Kandiyohi, McLeod, Meeker, and Renville Counties!
Why do we do what we do?
Because we value the history and believe in the potential of this place we choose to call home!
