In November and December 2013, a task force (consisting of local organizations and individuals who live and/or work in Roseville) contacted approximately 100 to 150 non-retail businesses, with five or more employees, and invited the businesses to participate in a survey. Of those contacted, 41 businesses participated in the survey. The surveys were conducted using a structured survey document.
The University of Minnesota Extension Center for Community Vitality compiled the information and responses gathered from the surveys into a report. The report was presented to the task force on February 18, 2014. The task force then reviewed and ranked the potential projects offered in the report which address the concerns and issues raised in the survey.
