Just want to update you…..Daktronics started here in January 2007 with 110 employees, we are currently at 280 and plan to go up to 300 by the end of the year….and 500 by the end of 2009!!! They are doing a community open house this Saturday – production is over expectations here – life is good!
Lamberton – ethanol groundbreaking yesterday – 35 new jobs in Spring 2009
City of Redwood Falls approved a $3.8M family aquatic center. It is have a rock climbing wall, zero entry wading pool, lap pool, two slides, two diving boards, umbrellas and several other water amenities!
We are partnering with Minnesota West Community and Technical College for an extended education center here – partnership with Redwood County, City of Redwood Falls, and business partners – Lower Sioux Indian Community, and two additional funding sponsors to be named shortly.
Lots of things are happening in Redwood Falls! It was a very impressive town when I visited in April, 2007 (see blogs in archives) and continues their very positive momentum. In addition to the aquatic center, Redwood Falls also has a community ice skating rink, civic center, conference center that can seat 500, field house and fitness center. And, in a town of 5,459!
